Laura Virella (BM ’03, Voice) was chosen to sing in a master class with Christa Ludwig, where she was interviewed by a reporter from the Kleine Zeitung newspaper. She performed the final trio from Der Rosenkavalier with the AIMS Graz Orchestra, led by Mo. Gerrit Prießnitz, and soprano Linda Watson as the Marchallin. A great review came out in the Kleine Zeitung as well. She also participated in operetta concerts, coached by Wayne Wyman and Dorit Hanak.
