Marianna El-Assaad from Antonine College.Marianna El-Assaad from Antonine College, Pascoe Vale South, is taking her love of singing to the other side of the world.

The Year 11 student is about to embark on a tour of Italy as part of Vocal Arts Studios’ biennial overseas performance trip. The trip includes workshops and mentoring sessions with industry professionals, as well as performances and opportunities to co-produce music with other students.

‘I’m looking forward to everything really, especially the opportunity to meet and work with people from London and Italy’, she said. ‘I’m looking forward to collaborating with new people and working together as a team to make great performances.’

Before Marianna leaves for Europe, she’s appearing in a competition in Bendigo. ‘It will be a whole new experience for me because I have never actually done a competition before. Despite my slight nervousness, I’m also confident because I have been hard at work rehearsing and learning stage skills with the help of my vocal coach Abbey. I also have overwhelming support from my family, friends and school who have encouraged me to improve and work hard in my music.’
