Sean Gordin, class of ’10, will be graduating this June with a degree in music from Lewis & Clark College in Portland, Oregon. Throughout her eight years at Highland Hall Sean was known for her exceptional musical talents. Sean played the cello, sang solos, wrote original compositions, and even performed with Melissa Etheridge at Highland Hall's Hallapalooza concert in 2009.
At Lewis & Clark Sean discovered that her voice was strong enough for opera and so she decided to pursue singing with a major in music. This past March, she was selected to perform with the university orchestra and sang Mozart’s aria for soprano, “No che non sei capace” and “Dove Sono” from the Marriage of Figaro, both of which can be seen on the Youtube links below.
“Sean gained a ton of confidence from her Waldorf education where she was always nurtured in mind, body and soul,” says her mother Sabine Ehrenfeld. “Her experience at Lewis & Clark has been amazing all around. It was a perfect match for her.”
Currently Sean’s plans are to stay in Portland for a while, audition as a singer for Cirque de Soleil, and then continue with pursing her masters degree. Her performances can be seen by clicking the links below.
