Laura Hines began her vocal study with the Magic Voice Studio in June of 2013, after a ten year hiatus from singing. She had previously earned a BA in French from Earlham College, and had worked for several years as a freelance illustrator and graphic designer. Her interest in joining MVS was sparked when she attended a spring recital featuring studio members and was reminded of the pleasure singing once brought her in her younger years.
In the fall of 2013, she won 3rd place in her District NATS Musical Theater division, followed by a 2nd place win at District NATS for classical singing, as well as an honorable mention at Regional NATS in the young artist division in 2014.
Under the attentive and encouraging tutelage of Stephanie Fox, Laura has rediscovered her voice and plans to pursue her reignited passion for singing and performance by forging a new career path as a professional classical vocalist and opera singer.
