The Music Conservatory is pleased to announce that Rachel Katzke, electric bass student of MCW faculty member Al Renino, has been cast in the role of "Katie" in Andrew Lloyd Webber's "School of Rock-The Musical," at the Winter Garden Theater on Broadway! She will be making her debut on November 7th, 2016.

"This role is unique in that it also requires her to play the electric bass live in an on-stage rock group," said her teacher, Al Renino. "Rachel came to MCW last year (at age 10) specifically with the goal of auditioning for this role, never having previously played or owned a bass. She worked incredibly hard, and I am extremely proud of her!"

Congratulations Rachel, break a leg!
