Adult Division 2020

The 2020 Adult Finalists

Alyse Flores

Alyse Flores was born and raised a LaPortean and has been auditioning for LPCSO’s Hoosier Star ever since she was sixteen years old! She immersed herself in an early love of music with private piano and voice lessons, sang in multiple choruses, performed in both the color and winter guard, and played piano with the jazz band.

Alyse attended Ball State University School of Music and studied vocal and music education.  She has taught voice, piano, music theory, and composition both privately and at The Lesson Loft music studio in Chesterton, Indiana.  Along with her love of music, Alyse also has a passion for beauty and is in her third year as hair colorist at Hair Fitness in La Porte. 

Alyse would like to thank her music educators Tom Coe, Mickey Stisher, Chuck Steck, and Rick Quarles for guiding and inspiring her in her youth.  She would also like to show her gratitude to her parents, husband, and friends for their endless support through the years.  

She hopes to inspire musicians to never stop performing!

Alanna Mossell

As a mother to a three-year-old, Alanna Mossell spends much of her time watching Frozen II and playing the way toddlers do. She enjoys watching her daughter go through the discovery of music and nature. As often as they can, they take time to go out on Lake Michigan. It is surely their favorite thing to do in this age when so much is off limits.

Alanna began singing as a child, as most people do. At age ten, she picked up a viola and began her journey through music. Today, Alanna is a music educator in the orchestra and string music vein.  She also joined the LaPorte County Symphony Orchestra as principal violist last fall. Playing in an orchestra is something she says she could never survive without. In times like these, viola practice and singing sustain her until she can get back to where her passion lies.

Alora Tribole

Alora Tribole is an 18-year old who’s number one passion is singing. She started to sing from the moment she could speak and hasn’t stopped ever since. Beginning when she was little, Alora has listened to, and developed a love for all genres of music. Other than a local talent show Alora performed last year; this is her first singing competition. She is very honored to be a part of The Hoosier Star. She thanks God, who has blessed her with a singing voice.

LeAnn Stutler

LeAnn Stutler is a singer-songwriter originally from Crown Point, Indiana. LeAnn has been a working musician since the age of 15, founding the local band Capernaum.

Evan D. Wooding

My name is Evan D. Wooding and I have lived in Laporte my whole life I have been around music since in the womb. My parents are Pastor Eric and Teresa Wooding and for as long as I can remember I have grown up in a very musical family. The arts were heavily promoted and encouraged in my household growing up.  I began piano lessons at age six and have been around church choirs and praise teams ever since.  I am a hair stylist at Hair Fitness and have been in the salon culture since I was sixteen years old.  I graduated with my beauty licenses in 2010 at the same time graduating with honors from La Porte High School.  I went to Purdue for two years for business.  I love traveling as a Sexy Hair Brand Educator to California every year to better my craft and educate other stylists around my region.  I love the arts and Laporte with all my heart. Shop and support local is my anthem!  Vote for me and cast your vote and support the amazing La Porte County Symphony Orchestra.
