This weekend, Kenai Central High School freshman Olivia Brewer sang on stage at Carnegie Hall in New York City.
She was selected out of 18,000 applicants, along with 284 other students worldwide, to join the 2016 High School Honors Performance Series in one of five ensembles that rehearsed, fine-turned and performed pieces in only three days.
“It is quite an honor, singing in a venue like that at this young age,” said Kelli Brewer, Olivia’s mother. “People work all their lives to sing at Carnegie.”
