Because of her summer internship with The United States Army Band “Pershing’s Own,” Arianna is excited to have been featured in the August edition of EastmanMAIL. The text from the feature is as follows:
“Originally from Mount Dora, Florida, rising senior clarinetist Arianna Beyer spent her summer in Washington, DC with the United States Army Band “Pershing’s Own.” As part of her paid Arts Leadership Program internship, Arianna performed in four of their summer concerts, two of which were on the Capitol Steps. In addition to these performances, Arianna’s internship included observing gigs, concerts, rehearsals, educational outreach programs, having interviews with members of the organization including the Colonel and Command Sergeant Major, and working with a wide range of offices such as the library and audio/tech crew. “Since my career goal is to become a full-time performing clarinetist working with either a world-renowned orchestra or military ensemble, it was such an indescribably incredible opportunity to see firsthand how The United States Army Band “Pershing’s Own” operates and to essentially have the chance to work my dream job for the summer,” says Arianna. “This was the experience of a lifetime!”
