In May 2008, we featured Chinwe Enu as one of two Opera singers in the USA traveling a path less traveled.
“Chinwe Enu is an attorney and classical singer. A native of Nigeria, Enu began pursuing her passion for music when she migrated to the States at fifteen. She attended Phillips Exeter Academy and was a participant in the reputable Tanglewood Institute Young Artist Vocal program. Enu subsequently received her Bachelor’s of Art from Vassar College, where she won the Vassar College Orchestra Concerto competition. She continued her musical studies at the prestigious Oberlin program in Urbania, Italy.
In the summers of 2002 and 2003, Enu traveled to Austria to study with international opera star Grace Bumbry. In 2006, she was selected to attend the American Institute of Musical Studies opera training program in Graz, Austria. While at the institute, she worked with notable names in the opera world including leading dramatic Soprano, Gabriella Lechner of the Vienna Staatsoper. Enu currently studies voice with renowned Metropolitan Opera lyric soprano Carmen Balthrop, and is now pursuing her music studies full-time at the University of Maryland School of Music. She was recently awarded the African Jewel Award at the recently completed African Goodwill Awards held in Los Angeles.” ~Ladybrille, May 15th, 2008
