Hi, I’m Talia Goldenberg! I’m in Madrigals, and serve as the tech officer this year. I’m a senior at Beckman and I’ve been in choir for all four year of high school. Before joining Beckman, I was in Pioneer Middle School’s advanced choir where I developed a solid foundation in music theory and the vocal performing arts. I’m excited for the musical this year and I hope to continue my passion for music in college.
