Alexa Chalnick, Freehold, NJ 2019 Winner of the Jean Revere Ferguson Scholarship

Alexa auditioned for and subsequently attended Howell’s High School Fine Performing Arts Center as an acting major, Westminster Choir College’s Solo Vocal Artist program, Rutgers Musical Theatre Academy, Papermill Playhouse’s Summer Conservatoy and even the prestigious Juilliard Pre-College Vocal Program.  

Performing has given Alexa her purpose and philosophy in life. She states, “Performing for me isn’t about being a star or getting rich.  It’s a way to show the most vulnerable parts of yourself to an audience that tries to hide those same parts of themselves everyday.”

She will be pursuing a degree in Performance and Music Education at Ithaca College this fall.

We congratulate this very talented young woman.
