New site; New chapter!
Hi all, and welcome to my beautiful new website: marisabuchheit.com! I have finished my reign as Miss Illinois 2014, and am thrilled to be embarking on my career path as a professional singer full-time. I’m thankful to the incredible supporters, sponsors, and friends I have met along the way, and recognize that many of the opportunities I have in front of me are the result of a team effort.
Special thank you to my dear friend Dr. Carl Soderstrom. Dr. Soderstrom is a dedicated supporter of the Miss Illinois scholarship program, and having him in my life has been such a blessing. My new site has been designed by Puck Media Group in L.A., led by Producers Robert W. Soderstrom and Jack Warren.
Now for a few exciting announcements. Drum roll, please… :) I am thrilled to share that I will be joining Wichita Grand Opera for their 15th Anniversary Season beginning this July! I will be participating in the Opera Academy of the Midwest, and singing in their productions of Turandot (Puccini), Don Carlo (Verdi), and The Grand Duchess (Offenbach), as well as numerous concerts.
I will also be making my debut with the Elgin Symphony Orchestra for their Magical Holiday Concerts in December (with Conductor Stephen Squires), and the Peoria Symphony Orchestra in February 2016 (under the baton of Conductor George Stelluto).
There will be more performance updates and exciting news to share in the not too distant future, so check back here and please connect with me on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc.! Thank you for your support!
