Following her passion from Homewood to Peabody and back

Claire Iverson ’20, dual degree in international studies and voice, fell in love with opera in her junior year of high school. In order to follow her passion, the Baltimore native (and Baltimore School for the Arts graduate) manages a staggering 12 classes a semester: four to five classes at Homewood and six to seven at Peabody. She has performed with the Peabody Opera Theatre and works part time on weekends as a singer at St. Jane Frances de Chantal Catholic Church in Pasadena, Maryland. Next fall, Iverson will study music in Milan, home of Italy’s famed opera house, La Scala.
