I have always loved music, and through playing cello for most of my life, I developed a deep appreciation for classical music in particular. My years at the Vancouver School for Arts and Academics, as well as my participation in the Portland Youth Philharmonic, contributed to my interest in both classical music and the development of the public arts community. I am excited to pursue these interests in the friendly and supportive atmosphere at All Classical Portland this summer! I am a big fan of the station, especially programs like The Score, which combines two of my passions: music and film.
I am a rising sophomore at Emerson College in Boston, studying Visual and Media Arts. My studies, especially regarding media history, have developed my interest in the future of broadcast. I strongly believe in developing public support for the arts, and while I am uncertain what the future holds for me, I hope to eventually contribute in some way to the local and greater arts community. Additionally, working with audio production and editing at Emerson has interested me in the technical and writing aspects of radio as well. Through my time at All Classical, I wish to gain an understanding of how a nonprofit organization works, as well as some experience in the technical side of radio and production.
I am extremely grateful for this opportunity and I am excited to help out at the station!
