Gaia Galvan continues to entrance, inspire and effect Stateline audiences with her enchanting voice. Gaia performed at The Castle with the Beloit Janesville Symphony Orchestra in 2015 for the film festival’s silent film showcase, Phantom of the Opera, and the following year for The Wizard of Oz.
Gaia can be heard on the children’s album “Poems in a Pail”, and her first full length album, “Whole Again”. She also won the first Midwest Artist Solo Vocal Competition in 2009. Singing with gospel choirs and Danny Gokey in 2001 is a memorable highlight.
