Zoë Gray presents her Distinguished Major Voice Recital Saturday, April 4th at 2:00pm in Old Cabell Hall. This event is free and open to the public.
Zoë is a fourth year double major in media studies and music in the performance concentration. Born in New York and raised in Tampa, Zoë Gray has been immersed in the arts her entire life. After taking private violin lessons based on the Suzuki method beginning at age 5, and then dedicating herself to years of ballet and contemporary dance training at age 6, Zoë realized that her highest love was not actually violin or dance, but singing. Her constant exploration with musical theatre, including the lead role of Marian in The Music Man (Masque Community Theatre, Tampa), led her to realize the true power of the voice. She began studying classical voice and musical theatre under Nancy Garma her first year of International Baccalaureate high school, and currently studies with Pamela Beasley at UVa. Zoë is a member of the University Singers and continues to explore the role of music academically as a TA for Professor Noel Lobley. She has received Honors in Classical and Musical Theatre for her participation in the NATS Voice Competition in 2017 and 2018 as well as 4th place in the St. Petersburg Opera Guild Vocal Competition in both 2015 and 2016. Perhaps most notably, Zoë sung the National Anthem for the Yankees in 2015 and 2016, and continues to participate in open mic nights and solo appearances. As a Media Studies and Music (Performance Concentration) double major, Zoë seeks to combine her intellectual and creative interests in the marketing field.
