My father habitually watched old western movies on the weekends and I was always fascinated by the sounds I would hear.
In high school, I enjoyed watching communities come together to watch or participate in the arts, and I wanted to further explore that with a career in music.
I believe that orchestra concerts should be accessible to as many people as possible in the 21 st Century. That comes with physically bringing concerts to the community instead of all of them being in a concert hall, lower admission costs, and representation of the communities’ backgrounds in the works that are performed and the people performing them. We should also expand our use of technology to reach more people globally.
