Fiona Slaughter

Fiona Slaughter, a junior music performance major and honors fellow in the Department of Music, was chosen through competetive selection for The European American Music Alliance Nadia Boulanger Institute, to be held in Paris this summer. 

For performers, the month-long EAMA-Nadia Boulanger Institute offers the opportunity to better understand the music that is performed through the discovery of the inner ear. The intensive month-long program features legendary analyses of major works from the Western canon lead by faculty of master teachers whose own evolving method informs the way they impart their musical insight.

Chamber musicians also have the choice of counterpoint or keyboard harmony to follow for the month, and can opt to follow musicianship classes as well. The students from all three divisions, Chamber Music, Composition and Conducting,  all participate in the Chorale, one of the hallmarks of Nadia Boulanger's pedagogical vision.

In addition, Slaughter was accepted, through competetive audition, to the Pacific Region International Summer Music Academy (PRISMA). The PRISMA Festival takes place in Powell River on the Pacific coast of Canada. The festival attracts world-renowned guest artists and top international music students. PRISMA draws over 5,000 concertgoers from British Columbia and beyond to daily musical events, symphony and chamber music concerts, master classes and student recitals. The PRISMA Festival Orchestra, the highlight of the festival, performs three full symphony concerts.
