A 2010 graduate of South Kortright Central School, Massey was involved in the high school’s chorus, band and musicals. She participated in Area All-County, NYSSMA, and Area All-State. These events, she said, helped strengthen her ability to “jump right into” a piece of music and learn it quickly for a performance. She said the South Kortright community has been very supportive of her and was excited about her opportunity in London.
At SUNY Oneonta, Massey sings in the Concert Choir and has performed in several operas, including last month’s “The Fairy Queen.” Massey said she isn’t sure what she wants to do after graduation, but knows she wants to keep singing. She called the London performance and trip “so great,” and said it meant the world to her.
“It was the greatest, most important thing I’ve ever done in my entire life,” she said.
