Highlights from Performance-Packed Summers!

Highlights from Performance-Packed Summers!

The halls at CIM are filled once again as the first weeks of classes begin. So we wanted to look back at our students, faculty and alumni who kept us posted all summer long as they hit the road for festivals, performances and appearances all over the globe. This year, we had them use #CIMSummer2015 when posting updates from their travels. And post they did! From pictures of rep, to sweeping mountains in Italy (in view from a practice-room!), to ensembles about to go on stage, our hashtag kept track of it all.

Here are some of the highlights:


Sophomore Zion Lee (violin, Zenaty) posted this lunchtime get-together with her fellow CIM students, Rachael Lemna (cello, Kraut), Rebecca Willett (piano, Brown) and Katja Yeager (viola,Irvine) at the Bowdoin International Music Festival.

Christian Standridge

Junior Christian Standridge (cello, Peckham) posted this shot if his music, with the caption, “Just wrapped up my first orchestral recording with Naxos!!! Torke Bright Blue Music, Copland Appalachian Spring, and Corigliano Symphony no. 1”


Recent graduate Bryant Gozali (BM '15 Geber), captured the “Brahms 2 Cello section” at the 2015 The National Orchestral Institute.

Practice room shot

Student Hosanna Carella (violin, Kwuon) posted this gem in which she jokingly captioned “'Worst Scenery Ever' in the practice room....” Carella attended the Zephyr International Chamber Music Festival in Courmayeur, Italy.
