Peabody students and alumni traveled to Haiti this summer and taught at the Holy Trinity Music School. Najette Abouelhadi (BM ’17, Cello), Benjamin Buchanan (MM ’14, Composition; MM ’15, Music Theory Pedagogy), Cynthia Katsarelis (BM ’85, Violin; MM ’87, Conducting), Lauren Vanden Broeck (MM ‘18, Voice), and current undergraduate student Thomas Swain, voice, were all involved.
It was wonderful when the younger “Peabs” showed up in Haiti! They brought great creative energy to the students there. I hope they come back! (I’ve been teaching in Haiti since 2004).
