NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) — Felix Zender is on the way! They’re headed to New York City from New Orleans, in fact.
Felix is about to become a student at Juilliard, the world-famous school for actors, dancers and singers.
At nineteen, Felix already had quite a resume, a lifetime of musical theatre. A friend encouraged them to audition for NOCCA, the New Orleans Center for Creative Arts.
The friend suggested that they sing. But not musical theatre — opera.
Felix did, and they got into NOCCA.
A couple of years later, another opera audition and Felix gets into The Juilliard School.
