Isabel Garcia

Isabel Garcia is 18 years old has just graduated from Irvington High School. Coming from a family of musicians, she’s been singing her whole life and has been involved in musical theatre since the age of three. She has performed in many local productions with companies such as StarStruck Youth Theatre and Irvington Conservatory Theatre. Starting at age 12, Isabel began vocal lessons and has not stopped since. Although she loves musical theatre, she isn’t looking to pursue it. In October, she will enroll at the Los Angeles College of Music in Pasadena, CA pursuing a Bachelor of Music Degree in Musical Performance with an emphasis on Vocal Performance. This has been her dream school since she was 14!

A firm believer in working hard for what you want, since it won’t be handed to you, Isabel has persevered through many of life’s hardships and pushed through to come out on top while showing great personal growth. She thanks her parents Martha and Rich Garcia, her friends and her vocal coach Matt Liebowitz for all their support. And of course, she thanks the Fremont 4th of July Parade Committee for giving her the amazing opportunity of singing the National Anthem at this year’s Fourth of July Parade!
