Madeleine Perry (13) was awarded the Rising Star Award from the Stars of Tomorrow Talent Show hosted by the Kiwanis Club of Castle Rock last month. The show was held March 8 with the master of ceremonies being meteorologist Dave Aguilera from CBS Denver.

Madeleine won for her violin playing and singing, choosing to perform an opera medley from the Phantom of the Opera. She credits the support of her family and friends as a motivation, saying it took a lot of practice, and their advice helped her do her best.
She started playing the violin when she was only four years old and has just recently begun singing.

When asked who her inspirations were, Madeleine said, “Lindsey Stirling has been a role model in my life, and inspired me to play her phantom medley.” Stirling is an American violinist, singer and songwriter who is known for her choreographed violin performances.

This wasn’t Madeleine’s first performance. She’s been down this road before. “I felt more confident this performance after doing it once before, and I felt like I might really have a chance this time around.” When asked if she was maybe nervous before the performance she added, “Absolutely.”

When asked about future ambitions and dreams, Madeleine stated that she would like to begin writing her own music. There are certainly a number of accomplished musicians who got their start after winning a local competition. So, who knows? Keep a lookout for future accomplishments and music from this rising star.

Other winners included, Elementary: Annabeth Town, Middle School: Sanjana Sankholkar, High School: Claire Cartwright, Best in Show: Ryla Maestas.
