As a double major in physics and bassoon performance, I’ve learned that spaces matter. A well-thought-out and engineered recital hall makes all the difference for musicians and audiences. Just as I have searched for spaces acoustically fit for performing, I have also searched for a school that would give me the space and flexibility to pursue both my passions: science and music. Ithaca College was that space.
The moment before a conductor’s downbeat is one of the most exciting in any musician’s day. In that instant, you experience the synthesis of many hours of rehearsal, new relationships, and untold amounts of knowledge gained. Imagine this energy at a performance of one of the most epic pieces of classical music ever written. Imagine it taking place in the venue where the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra regularly performs, or in one of the oldest churches in the United States.
