Pianist Lindsay Garritson makes her solo recital debut at Carnegie Hall, while Frost Music Engineering students Jeremy and Connor Golden did internships at Disney and Moog, respectively.
Receiving the education to reach a level of excellence that creates career opportunities is one of the many reasons students choose to study at the Frost School of Music and are proud to call themselves #FrostBuilt! Such is the case for Lindsay Garritson, Jeremy Zacuto, and Connor Golden. 
 
Pianist Lindsay Garritson will make her Carnegie Hall solo recital debut, November 11, 2019, featuring the world premiere of Carl Vine's Piano Sonata No. 4. She will also be premiering this work at the Royal College of Music in London in January 2020, at the Melbourne Recital Centre in April 2020, and in Singapore in May 2020. 
 
Garritson stated: "At Frost, I've been given countless opportunities to better myself as a musician, performer, and person. The mentoring I've received from my professors and the overall atmosphere of learning has been one of support and striving for excellence. As a doctoral student, I can't imagine a better program that caters to and enhances my professional life as a pianist!"
 
She will also be releasing her first CD internationally at the end of this month and is featured on the cover of the prestigious international classical piano magazine "International Piano" for their November 2019 issue.
 
Jeremy Zacuto was selected as the only music intern at Disney in Los Angeles this summer. Jeremy participated in the recording of the soundtrack to the animated film “Frozen II.  He also scored the music for the short film “Maestro” which can be accessed here.”  While at Disney Jeremy met Frost alums Kevin Harp (BM ‘98) and David Boucher ( BM ’97) both working at Disney as contractors and graduates of Associate Professor and Program Director of Music Engineering Technology Wil Pirkle’s class.
 
Connor Golden did an internship as a software engineer for Moog, the world leader of analog synthesizer manufacturing. Moog employs a group of wonderfully diverse individuals who share a passion for discovering elegant solutions that empower creative self-expression and joyous experimentation.
 
Stated Will Pirkle“The breadth of Jeremy’ and Connor’s internships, and the fact that they were competing with students from USC, Berkeley, George Tech and Stanford, is a testament to the work of the Music Engineering program over the past 42 years in establishing itself as the premier music technology program in the world.”
