Lily '21

Lily has taken hold of every musical opportunity at Govs. She plays her flute in the orchestra, jazz band, jazz combo, and classical trio, and she sings in the Academy Singers and The First. As a sophomore, she learned to play the tenor saxophone and clarinet so she could play more parts in the pit orchestra for the winter musical. No musical challenge is too large— Lily is always ready to expand her musical talent by trying something new.
