    Coming into this program, I was not sure what changes to expect in my musical perspective. I knew I would become more “cultured,” have more time to practice horn, and eat some incredible food (the bomboloni will always have a special place in my heart), but I didn’t know if I would have a...

    During our time in Venice we had the opportunity to experience several new things that could influence the work we do in Arezzo. Not only did we visit different sites with a rich musical history, such as St. Mark’s Basilica, but we were also able to attend a few musical performances. Juny Kim was...

    Before arriving in Italy, I thought myself mad for not being overly thrilled to live in another country for three months.  Most study abroad students I spoke with could only describe their continuously fueled excitement and amazement for living in a foreign land. I, however, was scared beyond reason.  Not scared to be away...

    Katy and Joanna

    What won’t stick out when I look back on my time here at ADA? But I think what I’ll remember most is the pure freedom to create, encouragement to do so and collaborate with those around me from teachers, and willingness and excitement to work together and make something happen from my peers (or...

    Snow Fall 2013

    I’m the kind of person who over-thinks everything. This tendency of mine gets me stuck in a lot of stressful ruts, because I put too much pressure on myself to “get it right.” So when Marjana told us in voice class, “Don’t sing the song. Let the song sing you,” I was a little...

    With the twin losses of my loving, supportive fraternity and a serious relationship, the conclusion of my sophomore year at Muhlenberg left me emotionally cratered. I performed my on-campus summer job as a walking vacancy: begging for fulfillment, yet unable to trust that any positive emotional anchor would outlive situations over which I had...

    Fall 13 Cortona

    The traveling experience that sticks out in my mind the most, that has had the greatest impact upon me as an artist, was visiting Pompeii. Amongst the ruins of Pompeii is their beautiful theatre. I must say, it is chilling and to remember that the reason it has been so well preserved is due...

      I knew coming into this program that the class structure and instructors would be different. However I was not sure exactly how they would be different. The classes are by no means easier, but I come into the classroom with a sense of relaxation. Although I know that my classmates and I are...

    Musicians Fall 2013

    The most surprising feature of living in Italy is unquestionably the wonderful food. The meals at the mensa are consistently delicious and a great deal of hard work and love goes into its preparation. Italian foods in general taste fresher than back home, namely since there are fewer added ingredients in the products. As...
