Luanda received a superior rating at districts and state thespian competition as a sophomore. At states, Luanda was one of the 10 superior ratings out of the 12 Boca thespians participating.
Only a Sophomore
Despite more than double of the number of seniors, juniors, and sophomores competing for one of seven musical solo spots in the District and State Competitions, Luanda landed one of those spots as a sophomore. She will be singing the challenging piece “Here I Am” from Dirty Rotten Scoundrels.
De Hilster has been taking vocal lessons from Rebeca Diaz for a number of years who chose this challenging piece for Luanda. The music includes a dance interlude where Luanda performs some of her own choreography. Here is the recording sent to districts of her performance at BrandStar Studio:
