Lily is short and sweet like this bio. She holds degrees in Flute Performance and K-12 Music Education from DePaul University, and has been on staff and faculty at Merit for years. Lily is actively involved in the Chicago music scene and gigs with all sorts of ensembles, ranging from various orchestras like the Northbrook Symphony, to her own group that she founded called, “The Persisters,” which features her flute playing, vocal, and loop pedal skills. She also performs and arranges music in a Radiohead cover ensemble called, “Ravenswood Winds.”
My favorite musician is Imogen Heap. She writes her own music and is incredibly innovative with her use of technology and re-imagining the experience of the performer and audience.
“Music education is so important in our society because it provides a space for people to communicate and express themselves in different ways. Merit is a place that offers students a wide range of avenues to explore their musical interests.”
