Student News: Lara Akal's Carnegie Hall Debut

Lara Akal (BA, voice, student of Adriana Zabala) recently made her Carnegie Hall debut on July 12. Her debut was a result of winning a Twitter contest run by Broadway actress (and Eagan, MN native) Laura Osnes and Paramount Pictures in a promotional event for the film Florence Foster Jenkins. Akal sang “Part of Your World” from Disney’s The Little Mermaid and was interviewed and filmed by several theater publications and media. She aspires to live and perform in New York City and is grateful to have had her own Carnegie moment to cross off her bucket list. Akal is featured on Playbill.comBroadwayWorld.comTheaterMania.com, and Playbill Video.
