Dan Trahey will lead a cultural exchange to Scotland

On June 2, 2013, faculty member Dan Trahey (BM ’00, Tuba, Music Education) is leading a team of lead musicians, advocates, and educators to Stirling, Scotland, for a cultural exchange with the El Sistema program, Big Noise. Trahey has traveled to over 20 countries and 30 states to study the way in which different cultures experience music and educate youth musically.  Other participating members of the Peabody community include student Lauren Rausch, Nick Skinner (BM ’08, Trumpet), Rafaela Dreisin (MM ’10, Trumpet), and faculty member Elijah Wirth (BM ’99, Tuba; MM ’02, Music Education).  The trip is funded by the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra.
