What’s on your iPod?
It depends on what I’m doing at the moment, but generally you’ll find me listening to jazz, acoustic covers, or choral music! Ella Fitzgerald is my go to girl, but if not, I’m probably listening to a Bach cantata.

What’s your fondest Westminster memory?
My fondest Westminster memory would probably be Commencement. Every year it is such a moving ceremony, and I’ll never forget the looks on my friends’ faces as they walk down the aisle of Princeton University Chapel as Westminster alumni. There are so many conflicting emotions on Commencement day, and it’s always so hard to say goodbye, but I am inevitably so proud of their accomplishments and who they've grown to be. It’s such an honor to be involved in that milestone for my friends, but most of all I’m reminded of how little time I have at Westminster and how I can’t take a single day for granted.

What’s your favorite choral experience at Westminster?
Absolutely Westminster Kantorei’s European tour last summer. I got to travel with some of the most talented people I know and sing early music in the spaces in which that music was written to be sung. Getting to sing in some of the most historic and stunning cathedrals of France and England is something I will NEVER forget. The choir is made up of such brilliant minds, you can't help but learn and get better in every rehearsal.

What’s on your iPod?
I don’t normally listen to music on an iPod but I have A LOT of CDs in my car. If you go on a drive with me, you’re most likely going to hear ABBA’s top hits (I have 3 CDs in my car), The Killers, Leslie Odom Jr., David Bowie, and some musical theatre. I’ve recently gotten into Marina and the Diamonds as well.

What’s your fondest Westminster memory?
Being an Orientation Leader for all of Rider University’s incoming students in the summer and at Fall Opening! It’s so cool that I get the opportunity to meet everyone and learn the stories of others.

What’s your favorite choral experience at Westminster?
Definitely getting the chance to record Hole in the Sky and Carolae with Westminster Williamson Voices. Working in a short amount of time and always reaching for the best level of choral excellence, Dr. Jordan and James Whitbourn pushed the choir to be as professional as possible to produce two amazing recordings that I’m going to listen to and appreciate for the rest of my life. The process of recording forces you to focus and use all of your musical ability. I love working with that group.

What’s on your iPod?
I have a whole mix of genres on my iPod! Everything from classic rock to pop to country to musical theatre. My favorite artists are Carrie Underwood, Rascal Flatts, Hunter Hayes, and The Band Perry.

What’s your fondest Westminster memory?
My fondest Westminster memories would be hanging out with my friends on the Great Plains or in one of the residence halls’ lounges. Whether we are playing football, doing work, or just hanging out, spending time with your friends and the people at Westminster is always such a good time. There are such great people at Westminster and you get the opportunity to make so many connections. Rehearsing with your class choir every day and performing with them and the rest of the school all the time is just icing on the cake!

What’s your favorite choral experience at Westminster?
My favorite choral experience at Westminster would be Schola Tour. Traveling to North Carolina/Virginia and getting to perform there was so much fun and such a great bonding experience. We also met so many great people and performed in some great spaces. I also really enjoy Readings and Carols and Commencement because singing with the whole school is such a blast, and it feels so good to be all connected with each other through music!
