Congratulations to Fullerton High School students Abby Lange (Classical Voice) and Isley Duarte (Acting), who have made the semi-finalist list of 110 students selected as Southern California’s most talented in the Music Center’s 31st Annual Spotlight Program.

Approximately 1,600 participants auditioned for Spotlight this year, with students representing more than 253 schools in 195 cities and eight counties.
Semi-finalists attend a special master class in their genre with highly regarded artists who share their expertise on performance technique, training and professional life. Experts provide students with highly valuable feedback on their performances.
Each semi-finalist will audition again before a new panel of judges who will select the top two finalist performers plus one Honorable Mention in each category. Each category’s Grand Prize finalists receive $5,000 scholarship each and each Honorable Mention receives $1,000 each. Semi-finalists receive $300 each. The Music Center also celebrates five students in each category with the Merit Award, a $100 prize.
Fredric M. Roberts is founding chair of the Music Center’s Spotlight program. The late Walter Grauman was the creator. For more information visit or join the conversation on
