The King’s Academy senior Orietta Regalado has been accepted into the highly esteemed Manhattan School of Music, where she will pursue a degree in vocal performance.
Regalado underwent a rigorous audition process and competed against more than 1,300 students. She has also been selected to study voice in the top vocal studio at the school under the chairman of the vocal department, Maitland Peters. TKA 2004 alumna Lauren Jelencovich also attended the program and has been touring the world as the principal soprano on the Yanni tour since graduating.
Regalado has been an active member of TKA’s Fine Arts Department for eight years. She was a member of the middle school choir In Him and is a member of the high school honors choir His People. She has been a part of every musical production since seventh grade and has played principal roles in Seussical The Musical, Phantom of the Opera, The Sound of Music and Titanic: The Musical. She recently won first place in the Choral Society of the Palm Beaches Young Artist Vocal Competition.
“Orietta is a very special young lady with a remarkable God-given gift,” TKA Fine Arts Director David Snyder said. “It has been a joy and privilege instructing her throughout her time here at Kings. She has found great success on our stage, and I look forward to seeing her find success on the world stage representing TKA and God her savior.”
