The 2015 VUSAS High School Scholarship winner is soprano Hadara (Haddi) Meyer. She performed “Stizzoso, mio stizzoso” by Pergolesi before a panel of 6 judges from Vancouver USA Singers. She will be a guest performer at our March concert and receive our $1000 scholarship.
Haddi Meyer is a seventeen year old senior at Mountain View High School, and sings there as a part of the Mountain Express Acapella Choir, as well as the Concert Choir under the tutelage of Jenny Bell. Under the fine teachings of Linda Appert, Haddi and her accompanist Cinda Redman recently took first place in District Solo and Ensemble, and are headed to State in late April. She aspires to become a prominent investigative journalist, and plans to minor in vocal performance. She would like to thank her parents Dave Meyer and Laurie Gaffen-Meyer for their love and support.
Congratulations Hadara (Haddi) Meyer!!
