Have you ever heard of the world renown Newport Jazz Festival? I bet many of you have, or have actually attended it... or maybe even wished you had. But, how AMAZING is it to actually perform on the main stage? One of our own, Lyme-Old Lyme High School junior, Sophia Griswold did just that this past summer!
Sophia was accepted to the Berklee Global Jazz Institute - a 5 day institute where students from around the world worked alongside professional musicians. Sophia was a U.S. representative among students from Argentina, South Africa, Australia, Israel, Netherlands, Costa Rica, Chile, Puerto Rica, Panama - all young, talented musicians invited to learn, rehearse, work alongside some major musicians in Jazz including Grammy Award winner Danilo Perez (piano), Tia Fuller (saxophone), Terri Lyne (drums), and Jason Palmer (trumpet) along with other Berklee faculty.
When asked what impacted her the most, Sophia responded "the kids were the biggest thing - I learned so much - all the other kids were so good that they pushed you - we challenged each other to become better".
