Lamont students perform for HRH Prince Harry
(May 14, 2013) Ten students from the Lamont School of Music were invited to perform for a reception for HRH Prince Harry on May 10 at the Sanctuary Golf Course Club House in Sedalia, Colorado.
Jenna Bainbridge, a junior Voice Performance major, performed as Cinderella at Boulder's Dinner Theatre and as Belle in PHAMALY's Beauty and the Beast. Vocal Jazz Performance major Samantha Barrasso and vocalist/composer John Jones both performed in this season's DU production of Fiddler on the Roof. Jones (pictured at left) performed in Welsh, his grandfather's native language. The three vocalists were accompanied by a jazz combo featuring Eli Acosta, Jake Alvarez, Sean Edwards, Charles Hoffer Fenning, Justin Peterson, Camilla Vaitaitis, along with pianist Jon Parker.
All three vocalists auditioned for the British Consul General and were invited to perform at the VIP reception attended by a Colorado "who's who" list of invited guests. View the CBS channel 4 interview with Bainbridge and Alvarez.
