On Thursday, May 13th, 2021, the HS Band virtually welcomed Chicago based clarinetist, Ms. Jade Garcia, into the band room. Ms. Garcia is an avid performer, educator, and advocate for music education. She holds a bachelors degree in clarinet performance from the University of Colorado Boulder and a masters degree in clarinet performance from Roosevelt University's Chicago College of the Performing Arts. Ms. Garcia presented students with performance clips of her work and spoke to her experiences in the music industry as a professional musician. The majority of our time together was Q&A with Ms. Garcia and students. Students asked about studying music in college, finding jobs in the industry, the importance of a life/work balance, the art of listening and musical interpretation, and life after high school in general. Thank you, Ms. Garcia for such an engaging, thoughtful, and intentional time with us - your performances and conversation were truly inspiring!
