Chantel has always been very musical. She started with piano at the age of 3, then moved on to violin, musical theatre, and then finally classical singing. She is in grade 12 and plans on studying opera next year in university. Along with music, Chantel is an honour roll student, and the Executive of the Arts Council at her school. She is excited to be a part of Candesca and looks forward to this year.
