St. Ursula Academy senior Madeline Dominique has taken a big step toward her dream of performing opera on stages all around the world. She is one of 150 students chosen to sing in the Ohio Music Education Association All State Choir at the OMEA Convention in Cleveland in February of 2015. She has been a member of the school’s Concert Choir and Honors Vocal and Ensemble, under the direction of
Ms. Wen Chin Liu, since her freshman year, and brings plenty of stage experience to her upcoming appearance.
In addition to her roles in musicals at St. Ursula and St. Francis de Sales High School, and 3B Productions for four years, Dominique performed in the Toledo Symphony’s 2014 presentation of Beethoven’s Ode to Joy, featuring 1,000 voices. In 2013, she was selected to be a member of the 2014 OMEA’s District 1 Honors Choir, and was also chosen as the Masterworks Idol of 2014, which entailed a solo performance at the Valentine Theatre. She performed at Carnegie Hall in New York City in the National Festival Chorus with the St. Ursula Academy Choir in March 2013.
Dominique plans to major in Operative Vocal Performance and Marine Science. In her free time, she enjoys playing the piano, reading, and volunteering in the community.
