North Shore senior competes on MSG Varsity’s Talent Show

Lisa Vetrone, a senior at North Shore High School, has been singing for as long as she can remember, but only recently started performing publicly. Several open mic nights in New York City last summer, and one at Page One in Glen Cove, gave the singer-songwriter the confidence to send in an audition video for MSG Varsity’s Talent Show on Cablevision last fall, and this spring, she found herself on stage, in full make-up, performing to a crowd of about 60 people while being taped for the cable network’s high school talent show.

“It was beyond my expectations,” Vetrone says of the experience. “Performing on stage made me realize this is what I want to do.”
