Senior Amie Williams to Sing at Commencement
UW-RF senior Amie Williams will sing at the Fall 2002 commencement ceremonies for the University. Williams, a broad area music major from Rio, will lead the students, faculty and guests in the UW-RF Pledge Song and "America the Beautiful."
Williams said she is thrilled and honored to have been selected. "I'm a little scared, too, but it will be fun," she said.
After graduation, she plans to secure an internship in arts and administration with a theatre or music company. Most likely, she will work in St. Paul or Minneapolis, Minn., to get some good experience. She is currently singing with the St. Paul Cathedral Choir, and will probably audition for the Minnesota Opera in the spring.
"I hope to learn how to book shows, handle publicity and get famous artists to come in," she said. "At the same time, I will sing professionally whenever possible with operas or church choirs. Eventually, I will probably move to New York City."
UW-RF fall commencement is scheduled for Saturday, Dec. 21, 2 p.m., at the Robert P. Knowles Physical Education and Recreation Center.
