February 2019 Newsletter

Happy New Year! I hope you all had a splendid start to 2019.

A lot of exciting things have been happening! I found out at the start of the year that I advanced to the audition round for the Master of Music program at New England Conservatory. I am busy preparing for my audition later this month.

I am thrilled to share that I have been featured in this month's issue of DownBeat Magazine! I was included in the cover story which discusses Terri Lyne Carrington's initiatives for supporting women in jazz. Read it here!

I recently created a Facebook artist page. Give it a like!

Women in Jazz Collective resumed our monthly jam sessions in partnership with Virtuosity Musical Instruments last week. It was a great time!

I started building a Women in Jazz Directory on my website. I hope it will be a useful resource for artists and educators looking to learn more about women in jazz and find opportunities to grow as musicians. Check it out!

It's been a busy start to my final semester at Berklee. I performed with the Berklee Concert Jazz Orchestra at the final Berklee High School Jazz Festival (pictured above). The BCJO is now preparing for a concert with guest artist John Hollenbeck later this month. I am taking a full course load, dotting i's and crossing t's to make sure I graduate this spring!

I am looking forward to the fabulous February ahead!
