October’s Student-of-the-Month!!!

Grace Aroune has been a student at Main Stage Studios for almost three years. She currently studies voice with Leah Wietig and studies acting with Meaghan Reilly-Randall. Grace is a senior at Iroquois High School where she is very active in their drama club, always participating in the school plays and musicals. Grace shared with us three of her favorite performing moments.

“Some of my favorite performing moments include my first performance with Main Stage Studios at The Roycroft where I sang “At Last” by Etta James. Another memorable performance moment was in New York City at a 3-week summer camp I attended where we performed an original musical for fellow campers. My other favorite performing moment is in my kitchen, singing and dancing around the sink as I do dishes!”

Grace draws her musical inspiration from listening to music that spans Broadway musicals to sacred choral music. She also enjoys listening to the band “fun.” and music by Sara Bareilles. She is inspired by the endless support and encouragement from her family and teachers. She also finds it inspirational to have met and correspond with professional actresses, Tracey Wilson.

When she’s not singing and performing she enjoys spending time with her friends and family. She loves to read and take dance lessons. In the winter you can find her on the slopes snowboarding and in the summer she loves to swim and play beach volleyball.

When asked what kind of advice she would give someone who would like to take music lessons she said, “Take the lessons! By allowing yourself to learn more about your musical skills, you can only improve your talent and discover what else you’re capable of. Through my music lessons, I’ve learned and improved on not only my musical talents but self-confidence.”

Grace hopes to pursue a college career in musical theatre. She is currently applying and will begin auditioning for colleges this winter. Grace intends to continue studying voice and music throughout her adult life, always continuing to improve her singing!
