Every year, our Anniversary Gala is a chance to celebrate our special creative community. At the heart of that community are our students, which is why our 113th Anniversary Virtual Gala on May 20 will be co-hosted by two current Settlement students!
Meet Javon Nobles, a current Settlement student studying voice with Sharon Neff and one of this year’s Gala Hosts. A senior at Creative Arts Morgan Village Academy in Camden, NJ, Javon’s goal for life after Settlement is to perform on Broadway, and he is well on his way. Javon has already had the chance to perform in productions of West Side Story, Once On This Island, Footloose, Dreamgirls, and Carols In Color. He was invited to sing as a tenor in the All-South Jersey Chorus and is a member of the gospel choir Omar Fredrick & Devotion.
Next year, Javon will be off to William Patterson University to continue his studies, but the lessons learned at Settlement with Sharon Neff are likely to stay with him for a lifetime. On his time spent with his voice teacher, Javon says he can “see progress in my voice every day!”
