The community is invited to attend a unique workshop in which famed opera singer and Riverhead High School alumna Kerriann Otano will work with several select Riverhead High School choral singers to perfect their technique and performance ability. The master class event will take place on Wednesday, April 17, at 6 p.m., at Riverhead High School. 

Otano has experienced tremendous success since graduating from Riverhead High School in 2006 and is set to make her debut at the Metropolitan Opera in March. The soprano has also performed with the Washington National Opera, Wolf Trap Opera and Mannes Opera in addition to the Fort Worth Opera Festival. She holds degrees from Indiana University Jacobs School of Music in vocal performance and the Mannes School of Music in voice. 

The students who will be singing and working with Otano on stage during the class will be selected based on their New York State School Music Association performances and if they performed in the NYSSMA’s All-State Festival.   

“This is a once-in-a-lifetime experience for everyone involved,” said Riverhead High School choral director Dena Tishim.
