Hello! My name is Nadia Oakley and I am a Sophomore, Sociology Major on the Pre law track from New York City. I have been studying music since forever. Since I was raised in the church, I constantly was exposed to different varieties of music as well as the instruments that go along with it. By the time I went to middle school, I had auditioned for a performing arts middle school where I became a vocal major. I decided to continue on this path when I auditioned again to go to a performing arts high school and remained a vocal major. There, I was exposed to Jazz, Classical, Opera, Musical theatre, German and French Arias, as well as participating in master classes to prepare for the presentation of our solo repertoire. ¬†One of my greatest exposures to music was when I was casted as the Countess in the Opera “Le Nozze Di Figaro”. This opera challenged me because we had to put on a whole opera and learn all the repertoire as well as running a dress rehearsal. While I do love and appreciate Music, I have decided to go to law school and become a Civil Rights attorney.
