A JCC alumna is among the contestants during the 2014 Chautauqua Lake Voices! Victoria McIlvain, Class of 2014, earned a degree in Fine Arts: Music from JCC and is continuing her education in music performance at Mercyhurst University, where she will focus primarily on operatic and classical music literature. Victoria is a primarily classical singer, but has been singing contemporary worship, country, pop, and jazz music since middle school.
Victoria has performed as a classical guest soloist for the St. Luke's Episcopal Church choir, as a classical guest soloist for President Cory Duckworth's inauguration at Jamestown Community College, and at various recitals at JCC and the Infinity Performing Arts Center. She also attended a summer Blues camp in Chicago in 2012 at Columbia College with a full scholarship; has performed as a repeat feature soloist in the Jamestown Municipal Band; and has also performed various solo features in JCC music concerts.
Chautauqua Lake Voices will kick off July 14 at 6:30 p.m. on the Floating Stage in Bemus Point. Good luck, Victoria!
