BW Conservatory alumna Felicia Rojas '10 reached two big milestones in the summer of 2015.

Conservatory Grad Lands New Gig with Grammy-Winning Divas

July 29, 2015

Two big milestones for Conservatory grad Felicia Rojas '10 this summer! She finished her Doctorate of Musical Arts in Violin Performance at Texas Tech University in May 2015 and promptly landed a job making music with the Grammy award-winning Mariachi Divas de Cindy Shea, a multicultural, all-female ensemble based in Los Angeles. 

Rojas is in the process of moving to LA to begin rehearsing and performing with the group, which has recorded 11 albums.  She's been told to prepare to begin traveling and playing with the Divas almost immediately in places like Sacramento, Chicago and Mexico.

Rojas told the BW Alumni Office, "I could not have achieved any of this if it were not for the wonderful professors of the BW Conservatory including [strings chair] Dr. Julian Ross [and many others]...who aided me in my education and my quest to become the best possible musician I could be."

During her time at BW, Rojas had the opportunity to participate in the Bach Festival orchestra for four years, in productions of The Phantom of The Opera, Semele, and Our Town; and in masterclasses with Cleveland Orchestra members.
