Happy Prom and Graduation, High School Seniors. I know that this season is going to be a rollercoaster ride for you - happy, sad, scary, anxious, and tons of worries. Even though I'm two years removed from my senior year of High School I re-live those feelings every time I see a prospective student. I hope that while you are reading this that you find some sense of relief because it is about music. I just finished my finals to end my second year of college at Oberlin. Woot.
