Antanas Meilus '09, music with a minor in history
"My first impressions of Salem State were that of a thriving community of educators and students. My initial concerns centering around my abilities to grow as an artist and student were immediately quelled as I met the faculty and staff of the Music Department, my major. The have done a great deal for me, helping to develop the skills that I need to succeed in the classical music industry.
I have always wanted to study something I love. I love the power that music brings to anything, be it an opera, musical, or even a TV commercial. Music is an enigma but it's always made some kind of sense to me so, I decided to explore that in my undergraduate degree. I hope to be performing for the rest of my life in the opera genre of classical music and, possibly, attain higher degrees in musicology and tech in a college setting."
