Hello! I'm currently in my senior year at Barnard College of Columbia University studying Music. I'm enrolled in Barnard's exchange program with Manhattan School of Music studying flute and piccolo with Linda Chesis and Michael Parloff. I studied with Jim Walker throughout high school and was a National YoungArts winner for piccolo in 2016.
In my time at Barnard/Columbia, I have played principal flute in the Columbia University Orchestra and am currently the music director of Barnard's flute choir. I have played flute, piccolo, and a bit of clarinet in pit orchestras for Camelot, Addams Family, Spelling Bee, Guys and Dolls, and Wizard of Oz. I have also played flute and piccolo in the pit orchestras for Mozart's Marriage of Figaro and Magic Flute. This semester, I am the co-music director and conductor of Legally Blonde. Last semester, I was called to conduct Spring Awakening on one day's notice after not having been in the pit, which was both terrifying and incredibly exhilarating.
In the future, I hope to pursue a career as a professional pit musician. I hope to study clarinet, saxophone, and oboe in grad school so I'm able to play full Reed books confidently.
