Rhea was invited through her music school, Lindeblad School of Music, located in Pine Brook, New Jersey.
She has been taking guitar, piano, and voice lessons at Lindeblad since the age of six and had the opportunity to perform at Carnegie Hall for the first time in 2018.
“Getting to perform at Carnegie was an extremely selective process that involved auditioning in front of two judges,” Rhea explained. “I was eventually a winner of the Student Showcase Audition Performance which took place at Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall. At Carnegie, I performed a classic Italian piece called ‘Intorno all'idol mio’ by Marco Antonio Cesti. It was an amazing experience to perform at such a renowned institution and is one of my proudest accomplishments that reminds me of my progress as a musician and one that I will cherish forever.”
