One day, Sarah Christine White '16 wants to be onstage performing as a professional flutist.
And whether she's playing a 300-year-old Bach fugue or music so cutting-edge that it's never been performed before, White knows she'll be ready thanks to the music education she's received at Susquehanna.
"The necessity for students to work and embrace such a range of music at Susquehanna is of great importance," White says.
Faculty mentors also have been an important part of White's experience.
"The amount of dedicated time that I receive here regarding my own personal growth is far greater than I could have even imagined," she says.
She formed a close relationship with Marcos Krieger, associate professor of music, when she began private organ lessons and started helping with weekly chapel music.
"Dr. Krieger has become a major role model for me in terms of leadership and ownership of one's own personal goal," she says.
White has enjoyed plenty of opportunities to perform outside of class-in the orchestra, wind ensemble, symphonic band, handbell choir and chapel choir.
