“As a musician it is always an honor, and most importantly a privilege to share with my community the work I am doing in school and beyond,” said Chase. “ I will always be a “Newporter” wherever my life journey will take me, and I will always be forever grateful to the people in this small piece of paradise who have nurtured me since I was 8 years old and singing at St. Mary’s. This recital is not to honor me, rather it is a gift to all those who appreciate the art of classical voice and who wish to share a moment in celebration of the accomplishments of a simple “island girl” from the “Fifth Ward” with a song in her heart that desperately needs to be sung.”

Chase’s full recital is planned for December 2017 and will be performed at Providence College.
