Vocalist Mia Pak makes her Cape Symphony debut in Symphony at the Seashore, fresh from another debut earlier this summer at New York’s Lincoln Center Theater in Grace McLean’s new musical In The Green.
Hailing from Monterey, California, Mia’s interest in theater began around the time she learned to walk! She now lives in New York City where she is pursuing a career in theater as well as earning her BFA in Drama from New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts. And yes, Mia is the daughter of the Cape Symphony’s Artistic Director & Conductor, Jung-Ho Pak.
Mia has been in over 20 productions spanning from Shakespeare’s comedies (Hero in Much Ado About Nothing, Bottom in A Midsummer Night’s Dream) to contemporary musicals (Fantine in Les Miserables, Veronica in Heathers, Wednesday in The Addams Family) to American family dramas (Catherine in A View From the Bridge, Esther in American Hwangap).
Mia began her training at Interlochen Arts Camp in Northern Michigan in the summer of 2010 and returned for six more summers. She also attended The Performing Arts Project in North Carolina for two summers in a row.
In addition to performing, Mia enjoys directing, choreography, and songwriting. Mia is a 2016 YoungArts winner in Theater, a 2017 U.S. Presidential Scholar in the Arts Nominee, and winner of the Interlochen Arts Camp 2014 Maddy Award.
Mia appears with the Cape Symphony in the free outdoor concert, Symphony at the Seashore, on August 23 at the National Seashore in Eastham.
