WE Staff 2018


Taylor Joyce '19

Taylor Minor

Hi! My name is Taylor. I've been in the ensemble since freshman year, and loved every minute of it, and so I'm very excited to be manager this year. I've played marching and concert percussion since Jr. High, and am a particular fan of the marimba. I'm a junior in Dunster House studying Linguistics (MBB track) with a secondary in neurobiology. Last year, I coordinated our first sensory-friendly concert series with HURAA (Harvard Undergraduates Raising Autism Awareness), which I'm also co-president of. I'm involved in the Deaf Awareness Club and other things I really enjoy include dogs and volleyball.

Serin Baek

Hi! My name is Serin, and I am a flute player in the Harvard Wind Ensemble! I love playing with the wind ensemble and being a part of this aWEsome community! I live in Florida (recently moved there from Alabama) and am pretty unnerved about Boston's cold weather. I am a freshman in Wigglesworth, currently on the pre-med track. I am also taking Swahili this year, so I just want to leave you with one phrase: hakuna matata!

She will also be playing for the New England Intercollegiate Honor Band this spring. Emma looks forward to another semester of WE!

I am a freshman horn player this year living in Holworthy. I am from Spokane, WA where I attended Central Valley High School playing in their Wind Ensemble, Jazz Band, Pep Band, and Marching Band. I also played for the Spokane Youth Symphony, so I was very invested in music. Here at Harvard, I am playing in the Wind Ensemble, leading trips with the Outing Club, and studying Environmental Engineering. Music, mountains, and math are my passions.
