Freshman vocal performance major Haley Vick is one step closer to a dream career: she recently landed a six-month paid stint with the Walt Disney World College Program in Orlando, Florida, where she’ll be involved in various performances and character roles. Way to go!
“Being Belle or Ariel singing on stage at Walt Disney World” would be a dream job to Haley, who sang in her state’s Honors Choir for two years in a row, performed the lead in several musicals, and was accepted to the Berklee School of Music in Boston. She derives her vocal inspiration from her Aunt Myra, “a wonderful singer who has always kept a positive outlook on life.”
Haley began her college career last fall at Carroll University in Wisconsin, making the Dean’s List before coming to Parkland College in spring 2011. She says she enjoys Parkland’s “friendly and approachable” atmosphere, which agrees with her outgoing nature. If she’s not studying hard or singing with the Parkland Chamber Singers, you might find Haley at C-U’s Espresso Royale, listening to music by Green River Ordinance, or catching a Milwaukee Brewers game. But pretty soon, you’ll have to go all the way to Mickey Mouse’s house to find her!
