Berklee College of Music assistant vice president Marjorie O’Malley, assistant director Colleen Glenney, and four Berklee students recently traveled to the Stamford, Connecticut home of Dr. Morton and Mrs. Terri Salomon to welcome incoming students and their parents to Berklee College of Music and its summer programs. Roughly forty guests enjoyed light refreshments and solo piano music by film scoring student Zach Lucia ’14 while discussing their aspirations and apprehensions, some of which were allayed by current Berklee students, who spoke about their own anxieties when they first enrolled.

The students also told the newcomers about some of the surprises they discovered upon entering Berklee and shared inside tips on how to make the transition easier. Dr. Salomon recounted his son Gabriel’s experience, assuring the other parents that Berklee requires hard work and focus and stating that Berklee had “brought out the best” in his son.
