Sopranos of The Doorway Singers
Brittany has been a Doorway member since 2015, but is no stranger to music! Since graduating from the music program at Wake Forest University several years ago, she dived head-first into performing locally. In addition to performing with Doorway, she regularly plays at various venues at the Virginia Beach Oceanfront with Aaron Firestone, and is also a competitive ballroom dancer. You may have seen her in the ensemble of The Wedding Singer (Generic Theater) or as Tracy Turnblad in this year's Hairspray (LTVB).
Jackie Alazas is excited to join the Doorway Singers this year! Quite accustomed to the musical theater world, Jackie is a second-year M.F.A. in Acting student at Regent University, where you may have seen her play Lady Capulet in Romeo & Juliet, Denise in The Harvest and Biondello in Taming of the Shrew. You might also catch her this spring as Meg in Little Women: The Musical. Her favorite roles outside of Regent include Claire in Proof (Generations Theatre Company) and the Fool in King Lear (Shakespeare on the Lawn at UVA). She takes voice lessons from Kathi-Lee Wilson, and is the Outreach Coordinator for the Inspire Collaborative Theatre, a group that develops new works in the area.
Ciara joined The Doorway Singers in February 2019, but from an early age, she knew that she wanted to sing and discover the endless possibilities of being creative. She was able to nurture, grow, and develop her craft while attending Henrico High School's Center for the Arts Program where she studied all things music and Musical Theater. In 2014, Ciara graduated Magna Cum Laude from Norfolk State University where she received her Bachelors in Music, emphasis in Voice. Ciara currently works for a nonprofit organization called Soundscapes where she teaches music and social skills to beginner-level students. She also leads praise and worship at Favor Nation Church in Chesapeake. When Ciara isn’t singing or teaching, she is busy working on a sewing project, producing/mixing in Logic Pro X, playing guitar, or best of all--spending time with her husband and son.
