Faces of Winona

DeLano-Carnegie Hall


If you enjoy performing and bright stage lights, a shot at performing at Carnegie Hall is a dream-come- true.  One Winona student will get that opportunity. Alexis (Lexi) DeLano, WSHS junior and choir student of Ms. Alexandra Johnson, has been selected as a finalist for the High School Honors Performance Series at Carnegie Hall in New York City.   The High School Honors Performance Series at Carnegie Hall challenges elite students to perform at their very best.  She was accepted after submitting a solo recording, as well as an application detailing her involvement in other honor choirs and vocal music camps, and a nomination from her teacher. DeLano, the daughter of Marcus and Sarah DeLano, has attended summer vocal music camp, was selected for the American Choral Directors Association of Minnesota (ACDA MN) 10th Grade Honor Choir, and has received both a Save Our Fine Arts (S.O.F.A.) and a Jake Edstrom Scholarship to use to pursue her vocal music interests.  Delano will be singing 1st soprano under the direction of renowned conductor, Dr. Edith Copley.  Lexi has received her music and will be practicing in the months leading up to the February 2-6, 2017 opportunity.
