Local 8th Grader Invited To Europe

It’s not everyday that an 8th grader gets the opportunity to travel out of the country. One student in particular, from Thunder Bay Junior High, has been invited to Europe for her amazing vocal talent.

14-year-old Brianna Mucciante has been singing since she came out of the womb. Although singing in front of an audience frightens most people, Brianna says it’s her comfort zone.

“I feel comfortable singing and it’s kind of like everyone has their thing. Their thing that they do that’s important to them and singing is my thing,” said Mucciante.

After auditioning for the Blue Lake Fine Arts program, Brianna made it into the chamber choir. To her surprise, she was also invited to be apart of the international choir- which will travel to Europe this summer.

The trip is an expensive one, costing $10,000, but it’s a once in a lifetime opportunity

“I think that it’s a once in a lifetime thing and I’m really honored that I was chosen and I want to make everyone proud,” said Mucciante.
