COURTESY PHOTOBETHESDA — A Montgomery County student is one of 21 finalists who will perform in a national art competition next month. 

Amanda Primosch, an aspiring opera singer and senior at the Academy of the Holy Cross in Kensington, will compete at the 37th annual National YoungArts Week, held in Miami Jan. 7 through Jan. 14. The competition is put on by the National YoungArts Foundation, which presents awards to high school students around the country in a variety of creative and performing arts disciplines. 

“I actually used to be terrified to sing in front of other people,” said Primosch, who serves as president of AHC's Madrigal Singers, as she explained how her sister – who is four years older– was the reason she got into singing.
