USC Thornton Popular Music alumna Malia Civetz (BM ’16) recently sang the National Anthem at the 2017 NFLPA Collegiate Bowl.
Earlier this year, Civetz performed Steve Hackman’s mash-up of rapper Drake’s music and Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 5, Tchaikovsky V. Drake with the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra. She will reprise Hackman’s piece on March 22 with the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra.
Civetz recently signed a publishing deal with Warner/Chappell Music, a division of Warner Music Group. While still a student at Thornton, she was named “Outstanding Blues/Pop/Rock/Vocal Soloist” by DownBeat Magazine and was also a member of the award-winning SoCal VoCals a cappella group.
