What has music taken you recently?

This past summer I went to Ireland with the Pittsburgh Girls Choir and we toured multiple cities over the course of two weeks. We go on international tours every two or three years as well as local tours every year.

What was Ireland like? 

It was absolutely beautiful and the greenest place I’ve ever seen. We got to sing in huge Irish Catholic cathedrals, which was super cool.

What was your favorite part of the trip?

A highlight was getting to perform for locals, and we even got featured on the radio in Waterford and in a local newspaper in Balbriggan.

Do you see singing in your future? 

Definitely. I’m not sure if I want to make a career out of music at this point, but I think it will always be close to my heart and hopefully becomes a side job.

Do you play any instruments?

I took classical guitar lessons for four years outside of school, and I play the ukulele a little bit.

Do you ever write your own music?

I love to write my own music. It’s very therapeutic and a great way to process my emotions. It’s also a lot of fun.

What’s your taste in music?

It’s all over the place. I like indie a lot. I do like Tyler the Creator, but I also like stuff from when my parents grew up.

If you could sing anywhere, where would it be?

I would love to go back to Ireland. We got the opportunity to sing in the Waterford Crystal Factory, and the sound was absolutely amazing.

If you could master any three instruments, what would they be?

I would love to master piano because it’s a very versatile instrument, but also guitar and cello.

What’s your favorite color?

Right now it’s purple, but it often changes.

Dream vacation?

Greece. I love everything about it.

Favorite class?

Currently, it’s either Film Productions or Honors Chamber Choir.
