Two HHS Seniors Shine at NJ Rising Stars Opera Competition

Howell High School seniors Emily Huguenin and Ciara DiMaiolo were recently selected as finalists in the New Jersey Rising Stars Opera Competition.

Entering its 21st year in 2019, Rising Stars is a classical music competition which sees finalists selected to participate in a concert at Algonquin Arts Theatre. According to its website, Algonquin's Rising Stars have a unique opportunity to publicly perform a classical selection and receive feedback and coaching from professional mentors who are active in the classical music industry. Participation can be an asset on a college application and also an opportunity to network.

Emily and Ciara were both invited to perform during the Algonquin's Rising Stars concert on November 13th.
