Melanie Powers

Melanie is 18 years old and has been playing the cello for about three years and is currently studying with Johnny Mok. Melanie plays cello in her high school orchestra and chamber orchestra. Along with her younger brother Joey and younger sister Maya, Melanie is homeschooled and loves diving with a local AAU diving club, and skiing with her siblings. After graduating high school, she is studying environmental science including marine biology and sustainable agriculture at College of the Atlantic in Bar Harbor, Maine.

I loved learning about the history of composers in rehearsals.
