From Mia: Choir has always been an integral part of my life. I joined my first choir at six and since then, have sung at exciting places such as the Empire State Building and Woolsey Hall.

 Mia Katz – Alumnae Historian

Major and class year: Mechanical Engineering, 2025

My favorite thing about AV: My favorite thing about AV is the community. Being a freshman who lost a lot of senior year to COVID-19, I was worried about what my social life might look like at WPI. The wonderful community with AV erased my doubts immediately – there were so many singers, especially upperclassmen, who welcomed me with open arms. I am proud to call such wonderful people my friends and mentors. 

Why did you join AV?: I started singing at 6, and it’s been an integral part of my life since. Choir is the perfect place to recharge and stabilize when life gets hectic. Sometimes, there’s no antidote to stress quite as powerful as music. There are few communities I’ve encountered that are as supportive as choir is, and I’ve met many of my closest friends though choir. Plus, it’s always encouraging to reminisce on old repertoire, which stands as physical proof of my self-improvement. Even before I arrived on campus, I knew that AV was a community I wanted to fully immerse myself in. 

Other involvements: WWPI – I currently have my show, MissingInAction, on Wednesday nights.

Fun Fact: I have two sweet Cavalier King Charles Spaniels named Charlie and Hollis. I also spend my summers on Block Island in Rhode Island, where I work as a camp counselor.

Grace Audette – General Manager

Major and class year: Mechanical Engineering, Class of 2025
