What’s on your iPod?
A lot of acoustic music—Jack Johnson, Ingrid Michaelson, Jason Mraz, Kina Grannis, Sufjan Stevens, The Civil Wars, etc.
What’s your fondest Westminster memory?
My fondest Westminster memory thus far would have to be travelling to Oxford, England with the Williamson Voices. The experience was filled with friends, fun, knowledge and lots of beautiful music. The passion and love for choral music that Dr. Jordan and Dr. Whitbourn shared with the choir is something I will take for the rest of my life.
What’s your favorite choral experience at Westminster?
My favorite choral experience at Westminster was performing at my first Readings and Carols. It has been the only Readings and Carols since that has included the entire school. It was magical to hear the entire student body come together and sing as one. The whole night reminded me of why I chose music as a career and why I chose to come to Westminster!
