Téa Renee Ning LaFleur
Téa Renee Ning LaFleur is a 16 year-old junior at Eastmont High School. Téa was born in Minnesota, but moved with her family to Beijing, China, when she was four years old. She lived there for 9 years attending a Chinese-English bilingual school until her family relocated to Wenatchee in 2014. Her music study began in Beijing where she studied piano, guitar and voice. She was fortunate to perform in multiple venues around Beijing as a lead singer/songwriter in her school's pop band. She received an award in a Shanghai singing competition, which sparked her interest in further pursuing professional training in vocal arts. Even after living an exciting life on the other side of the world, Téa really found her place in Wenatchee. She has been training intensively with Leslie McEwen and was awarded a superior mark in the regional WIAA/WMEA Solo and Ensemble Competition, which enabled her to represent the region as soprano at State. She was also accepted to All State Choir as a sophomore, but was most honored to be awarded first place in the Symphony's 2016 Young Musician Competition.
Téa enjoys being part of the Eastmont Drama Club where she has played a number of major roles over the past two years, including the lead, Elle Woods, in Legally Blonde: The Musical. An original 10-minute musical she wrote was debuted at Eastmont in the 2016 spring student showcase. She spends her free time writing music, having composed over 20 songs, and has recently added the ukulele to her list of instruments. Téa relies on the loving support of her parents, Nicolle LaFleur and Li Ning, and her sister Chanté Ning LaFleur. She would love to thank Leslie McEwen, Tara Abbott, and many more who have helped grow her talent and love for music. Téa plans to continue her musical journey after high school, aiming to attend college in music or performing arts. Whether on stage, radio, or screen, Téa hopes to inspire others to love music as much as she does.
