On May 11, Long Beach High School students had the opportunity to work with singer Samantha Guevrekian, who graduated from Long Beach High School in 2003 and now performs in the chorus at the Metropolitan Opera House. She provided a day of workshops that included vocal exercises, techniques and audition advice. 

Guevrekian was an All-State instrumentalist in Wind Ensemble during her high school years and went on to study voice. During her visit back to Long Beach, she led a master class with members of the Select Choir that left them inspired, helped singers practice their NYSSMA selections in small lesson groups and performed the song, “O Mio Babbino Caro” by Gianni Schicchi.
