I am a junior at St. Lawrence University majoring in Music and Psychology. From the very beginning of my career at SLU I have been actively involved in the Music Department, participating in both the Laurentian Singers and SLU String Orchestra. I have had the opportunity to take private lessons in multiple instruments, which has greatly advanced my musical knowledge and skill. I also currently serve as student coordinator for the Music Library, and this is my second year as leader of the Annex theme house for the performing arts. As a member of the Annex, I am provided with numerous performance opportunities and other creative collaborations. I was inducted into the Music Department's honorary Charles Ives Society in the Winter of 2010.
Music has always been a hobby very dear to my heart, and I am fortunate to have had the opportunity to pursue this passion at SLU in an educational setting. From the beginning of my career at St. Lawrence I was drawn to the Music Department by the supportive faculty, interesting classes and numerous opportunities to participate at various levels. I have met many wonderful musicians both student and faculty, and this has allowed me to significantly broaden my preexisting perceptions of the art of music. All of my classes, relationships and ensembles within the Music Department at SLU have provided me with invaluable knowledge that is certain to last a lifetime.
