Alexa Givens, 16, is currently a sophomore at Salt Lake School For The Performing Arts and is a member of SLSPA’s Music Conservatory Program.

She has studied voice with Doris Brunatti, Kathleen Kristiansen, and Lynnette Owen. She has performed for the local Salt Lake Festa Italiana, Lyrical Opera Theater, and was most recently invited with her choir to perform at Carnegie Hall during the 2016-17 school year.

Besides voice, Alexa also enjoys playing the piano and the violin. Music isn’t just an occasional escape from reality, Alexa sees it as much more. For her and her audiences, music moves the emotions like nothing else can.

When she is not spending her time creating and performing music, Alexa is either spending time with her family, volunteering at the Weilenmann School Of Discovery, or hanging out with friends.
