Music has long been a constant in the lives of the five children of Berklee parents Liz and Steve Porter of Mesa, AZ. Denver Porter ’09 became interested in Berklee while serving a two-year mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Boston. He later enrolled, and three of his siblings followed suit. Catie, the youngest, attends Brigham Young University, and sings with BYU’s vocal ensemble Noteworthy.
“As adults, they continue the tradition we started,” says Liz Porter. “Making music is a huge part of their lives. All are involved in music in some way and passing it on to the next generation.”
