Riley's Northern Ambassadors of Music Opportunity
Organized by: Riley Wilton
May 29, 2016
EVENT DATE Jul 08, 2017
Hello everyone! My name is Riley Wilton and I am a junior at Glacier High School in Kalispell, Montana. I've been nominated by my choral director Mrs. Sandee Sauer because of my accomplished musicianship and my character to participate in the Northern Ambassadors of Music 2017 European tour.
The Northern Ambassadors of Music takes choirs and bands from 38 states within the U.S. to Europe every other year to show them that while every country may be different, music is universal. Through this program, I will have the opportunity to travel to England, France, Switzerland, Italy, Liechtenstein, Austria, Germany, and Greece. It's only a twenty day program, but I know that the growth that will happen in my life will be immeasurable.
I hope to further my French studies while on this trip, as well as get a better sense of what it means to be an American travelling overseas. My main motivation for going on this trip is to get a more experienced grasp on embrasing the unknown, as that is exactly what I want to do with my profession. Though this trip will take place after my senior graduation, I hope to attend either Portland State University or University of San Francisco that fall of 2017, and either double majoir in Business Administration: Leadership and Management and Political Science: International Development, with a minor in French Studies at PSU, or double major in International Business and Social Justice with an advanced certificiate in French Studies at USF.
