Angelica spent a summer in Germany in an intensive opera program. She sang in Carnegie Hall with the choirs as a featured soloist.
Standing in line to register for classes at SFHS, I was anxious and unaware that soon I would meet the mentors who would inspire me to pursue my dream career. Theater and dance classes occupied my first semester’s introduction to the fine arts. Upon learning of my drumming hobby, my intuitive and attentive instructors introduced me to the music department. When I met Prof. Edens, Mrs. Harris, and Mr. Blanchard, I knew I’d found my home within my high school.
