Study Abroad the Musical, Destination: U.K.

When university student Cheryl gets dumped the day before Valentine's Day, she needs to get the heck outta dodge. Little does she know the crazy adventures in store for her, from new British besties to homestay nightmares to—you guessed it—more heartbreak! Join Cheryl in her semester abroad journey in Brighton, U.K. with all her own original compositions.

Bio: Cheryl Olvera is a Vancouver-based vocalist, choral teacher, voice coach and emerging composer originally from Edmonton, AB. She holds a Music Diploma in Voice Performance from Red Deer College, AB, and is currently pursuing her BFA Music Composition degree at SFU. She has dabbled in performing many genres—from opera to electronica—and is currently into performing contemporary experimental vocal works by local Vancouver composers. Cheryl writes for contemporary instrumental ensembles, but is now expanding into the world of theatre and film soundscapes and working on her debut musical Study Abroad. In addition to music, Cheryl is a Jack-of-all-trades and interested in everything. When she’s not at the piano bringing her strange musical brainstorming sessions to life, Cheryl can be found drinking coffee, sewing and designing clothes, painting murals, making jewelry, doing hair extensions, baking vegan cakes, running marathons, or in her CrossFit gym, pumping iron.
