On May 26, 2017, five days after graduating from Eastman, Arianna took the audition for the Concert/Ceremonial Clarinet opening in the United States Navy Band, and…. she won!! Now, in an exciting change of plans, Arianna will ship out to United States Navy boot camp in the fall instead of matriculating at Rice University’s Shepherd School of Music. Upon graduation from boot camp, Arianna will move to Washington, D.C. to work as an enlisted musician in the United States Navy Band - the premier musical organization of the U.S Navy.

As a clarinetist in the Navy Band, Arianna will have the opportunity to perform concerts at the White House, concerts on the steps of the U.S. Capitol, funerals at Arlington National Cemetery, ceremonies at the Pentagon, and public concerts around the country on National Tours with the U.S. Navy Concert Band.

Arianna is excited to see her dream of being a professional performing musician become a reality!
