As a gifted actress, musician, singer, songwriter based in Los Angeles, Mozart was thrilled to be one of six students who flew from Los Angeles to be part of this elite performance at the one and only Carnegie Hall.
So how did it go?
"It was just so awesome,” Mozart said an hour after the concert. “We were on stage at Carnegie Hall, where so many amazing people have stood, and I felt so honored to be there."
Mozart also sings Classical and Broadway songs like her recent concert in Los Angeles where she sang "Pie Jesu". She auditioned for and won a full scholarship as a top level "scholar" at the renowned National Children's Chorus which practices weekly with professors at UCLA musical school where she also learns composition, conducting and music theory.
She recently preformed with her choir at esteemed musical venues like Disney Hall hosted by LA Phil and with full orchestra by the American Youth Orchestra and Royce Hall at UCLA in Los Angeles, so Carnegie Hall was just icing on the cake. Maestro Luke McEndarfer and Dr. Pamela Blackstone led unique selections highlighting exotic cultures found along the ancient Silk Road, linking Asia with the west for more than 2,000 years and Mozart sang in her fluent Mandarin as well as a few other languages in a haunting array of rarely performed works.
These pictures above and below were at the rehearsal at Carnegie Hall on Saturday afternoon. You can see Mozart with her long blonde hair in the front row below to the far left in her rehearsal T shirt.
Of course, when it is time to perform she always wears the uniform.
Mozart loves her choir and feels very blessed to be a part of such a prestigious chorus and working with such gifted people. Interestingly, her voice teacher says that her work in classical actually helps her singing in pop as well.
Going to NYC with a friend and getting to perform at Carnegie Hall was so awesome that she didn't want to leave.
Mozart has always loved visiting Manhattan, but going on her own at this age made a big impression. She has decided she wants to live there when she is older or maybe be bi-coastal as I was as a young adult.
The trip wouldn't be complete for a teen without raiding the Carnegie Hall gift shop for souvenirs like hats and
a t-shirt to celebrate the occasion for some time to come!
