Alexa Kahn | 2nd Prize | Voice 2nd Edition | ENKOR Int'l Music Competition

Alexa Kahn
Score: 83.57

Alexa was born in California and lived in the Bay Area for the last 15 years. A few months ago, she moved to the Philippines where she is now a freshman at the International School Manila.

Alexa’s passion for music started at a very young age. In her first recording as a Kindergartner, she sang religious music, as she was inspired by the angelic voice of a Catholic nun.

Throughout her elementary years, Alexa sang for many school events, such as school masses, plays, and choral festivals. For the past 4 years, she has been taking formal voice training under Ms. Mary Elizabeth Enmann. Under tutelage of Ms. Enmann, Alexa developed her vocal strength and expanded her repertoire to sing in five languages. Alexa is inspired by learning challenging music.

Aside from her achievements in vocal performances, she has obtained the Branch Honors Awards from the Music Teachers Association of California for 3 years in a row, and was awarded 2nd place in the Spotlight Dance Competition of 2015. Alexa also received the Fine Arts Excellence Award at her Middle School graduation. Clearly, her inclination towards music and arts has manifested in her achievements.
