Scholarship Spotlight

Daisy Soberanis

2019 Gary S. Wilmer / RAMI Music Scholarship

I remember learning to play the recorder in the fourth grade and feeling proud of myself after learning every piece in the book. I practiced for long periods without realizing how much time had passed.  It was the same when I learned to play the flute, and still occurs to this day. From a young age, I found my strongest passion and soon discovered a world of opportunities music could bring to anyone- not only the ability to perform, but enhancement of the school experience and academic performance as well.  

I am a very active musician- I have been seated as the principal flute player of the Rockford Symphony Youth Orchestra, performed in Rock Valley College’s Starlight Theatre, Auburn High School’s Wind Ensemble and Jazz Band, local schools in need of member in pit orchestras for musicals, and qualified for the District 8 ILMEA Festival in 2018.
