Name: Haylee Cain
What are you most looking forward to about the Appalachian Spring Project?
Creating new music based off an original composition and accompanying dancers will be a new experience for me so I am looking forward to this opportunity. I am also excited to be part of a group of like-minded students/musicians who love music as much as I do!
What do you hope to get out of taking part in this performance project?
I hope to gain ensemble experience, development of my performance skills and musicality as well as improvement of my playing ability. I anticipate meeting my fellow musicians and mentors and hope to create some new friendships. 😊
How do you see that it will improve your music?
This project will enable me to develop my skills as a soloist but even more so as a member of an ensemble. I am hoping to build on my skillsets and learn from the ASO mentors and my conductor, Luke Dollman. I will be able to extend my musical capabilities through the intensive workshops and rehearsals as well as in my personal practice.
How valuable is this experience for you as a young artist?
I really value this opportunity as I haven’t previously been able to participate in a project anything like this one. As a young artist, I feel it will boost my self-confidence and familiarity with the music industry for my future aspirations in music.
