May 2019 Newsletter
This has been an incredibly exciting time in my life! Last weekend, I graduated from Berklee College of Music with my bachelor's degree, double majoring in saxophone performance and jazz composition.
I had some really fun performances recently as well. My senior jazz composition recital was on April 11 and my senior performance recital was on May 2. I am so grateful that both bands were incredible and comprised of my dear friends and colleagues. I also had my final performance with the Berklee Concert Jazz Orchestra on May 7. I dreamed of being in the BCJO or having them perform one of my pieces by the time I graduated. I was fortunate to have both of those dreams come true on that performance. Videos coming soon!
I am looking ahead to great things happening this summer. I will be performing and lecturing as part of the IAWM and FT&M15 Conference in early June. I am preparing for my position as a teaching fellow at Interlochen Center for the Arts. I am also gearing up to start my masters studies at New England Conservatory this fall.
I am so grateful to have so many wonderful things going on and incredibly thankful for all the supportive people in my life who keep encouraging me to push forward. Onward and upward!
