Last week’s Studio Spotlight performances were gutsy, gratifying, inspiring and exciting. Huge thanks go out to our twelve Studio Artists (listed below in context of their performances), pianists Eric McEnaney & Tomoko Nakayama, director Nathan Troup, assistant director Kelsey Carroll, stage manager Andrew Esposito, coach and supertitle coordinator Stephanie Rhodes, and Studio Co-Managers Lee Anne Myslewski & Grant Loehnig!
