Our Seniors

Evalyn Li

8.5 years with Cantabile
Dartmouth College

Since joining Cantabile in the fourth grade, I've learned what it means to immerse myself in music. At an even earlier age, I started piano lessons and became familiar with the nuances that music interpretation brings to a piece. But it was during my seasons in Vocalise, through song, when I began to express everyday words with power. Witnessing Elena's fiery energy every rehearsal, I admire her commitment to continuously gaining new perspectives. The opportunity to work with a different composer every year is a reflection of that mantra. Singing among friends, we feed off of each other's joy. From eating raisin pies in Newfoundland to creating real surround-sound in the Bing Concert Hall, I've loved dancing to "Roger Bobo Plays the Tuba" and acting as a steady-beating-heart in "Bi Bihotz." Thank you, Cantabile, my peers, and my family for making these moments possible.
