Following the Path

Cecilia Cai ’14  knows what it means to be a singer.

Studying abroad brought the pieces together for Cecilia Cai ’14. At SCU, she studied music performance, urban education, and Italian studies. It was in Italy in 2013 that she found opera. “That was when I realized what opera was and what being a singer really meant,” Cai says. “I didn’t fully shift my path at that time, but I started working toward becoming an opera singer.” This fall that shift brought her to Verismo Opera, where she tackled Puccini’s Madama Butterfly. Brava!
