Aderyn received an Oconomowoc Festival of the Arts – Fine Arts Scholarship. She
comes from a musical family and recalls spending her childhood in a diverse musical environment,
everything from church hymns to Billy Joel. She began playing the French horn in middle school and has
gone on to be principal horn as a senior. She is a member of the WDMA State Honors Project Band, a
member of the Milwaukee Youth Symphony and was a finalist for the UW Madison Tuition Audition
competition. Aderyn’s creative interests extend beyond the French horn. She is in the Concert Choir,
theater productions and ventured into AP Art and Design courses her senior year. She inspires others
with her tenacious studies, her willingness to learn and the abundance of joy she brings to any situation.
She will attend the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point in the fall to study Music Education.
