A path that began in Shelbyville has led Matasha Allen, a 2000 SCHS graduate, to a stage in a Michigan opera house.
“Being in a full length opera performance is something that I have dreamed of,” Allen said. “I did an opera in college, but this will be my first opera opportunity with a professional opera that’s not school related.”
As a child, Allen performed in choir and orchestra at SCHS and also in her church choir at New Mount Zion Baptist Church.
Today, Allen is preparing for a more pivotal performance.
