Avery Sujkowski, BM '16, received his Bachelor of Music in vocal performance. He spent most of his time at Northern studying operatic repertoire and keeping in touch with extracurricular programs outside of the University, such as the CCM Summer Opera Studio and the University of Toledo Opera Ensemble.
During his commencement ceremony, he was fortunate enough to sing the national anthem and graduate cum laude.
Immediately after graduation, he spent several weeks in Italy with the International Young Artists Project studying Mozart’s “Don Giovanni.” Since then, he has performed as General Novikovich in Lehár’s “The Merry Widow” with the University of Toledo Opera Ensemble.
Avery is now pursuing his MM with The Boston Conservatory at Berklee, majoring in opera performance.
