Meet this weeks Friday Feature, Kendra Kabara! When asked why he was nominating Kendra, Mr. Jacobson said that she is a shining example that students can be dedicated to MCC while still participating in (and thriving at) other extra curricular activities. Kendra sings with both of MCC's top groups, Voices of Eterna and Milwaukee Youth Chorale. She is a very talented and hard working young lady with an awesome positive attitude and willingness to help others.
Q. What grade are you in and what school do you go to?
A. I am a Junior at New Berlin Eisenhower.
Q. How many years have you been a part of MCC?
A. This is my sixth year in MCC.
Q. What is your favorite part about being in MCC?
A. Choir has been one of the most cherishable parts of my student career but my very favorite aspect of choir is how it has given me the opportunity to grow as a musician. I started out at MCC with zero knowledge of music, but now I am able to lead other vocal groups and educate younger kids on music theory and technique.
Q. Name an activity/hobby that you enjoy that does not involve music.
A. Although I devote most of my time to singing another activity I enjoy is tennis. I started playing my freshman year and it quickly became my favorite sport.
Q. What other musical extracurricular activities do you participate in?
A. Other than choir I also love theater!
Q. What is your favorite musical that you have been a part of? What is your favorite Musical that you have seen?
A. This year I had the honor of portraying the Witch in my school's production of Into the Woods! This being my favorite musical I have been a part of, my favorite musicals to jam out to are Rent, Sweeney Todd, and Chicago.
Q. What are your plans/goals for after high school?
A. As the idea of graduating is becoming more and more tangible each day I have been exploring what I would like to do after high school. I would love to attend UW-Milwaukee and major in either education or anthropology and minor in Spanish. Of course I plan to stay involved in music as well.
Q. Share a random fun fact about yourself.
A. One random fact about me is that I love animals - my favorites are dogs and whales :)
Thanks to Kendra for sharing! Stay tuned in for next week’s Friday Feature!
