A heated discussion on a previous page of this site has yielded the welcome information that Jackie Evancho, the 11 year-old child presently topping the US Billboard classical charts, checks in to study at the Juilliard School.
One of her fans reports: Jackie’s mother released the name of her Juilliard coach today. She’s Lorraine Nubar, the head of Juilliard’s Pre-College Division of singing.
Well, in a manner of speaking. Ms Nubar runs a Saturday class for 12 to 15 year-olds. Jackie has been allowed to slip in under the age bar. But it’s a good sign. She’ll get a solid grounding in general technique and a sharp eye for career opportunity. I look forward to receiving her grades.
