Born and raised in the Washington, DC area. Adrienne’s love for music started the day she was born. She grew up watching her father teach music in DC public schools, listen to him play jazz at home and playing in bands around town. She once played the tambourines with them on stage at about eight years old. Adrienne began playing the violin and soon found her favorite instrument, the flute! She Studied music at Duke Ellington School of the Arts in D.C. While attending Norfolk State University, she performed in the Symphonic Wind Ensemble as first chair flute and as a dancer in the Marching Spartan Legion Band. Both under the direction of Emory L. Fears.
A talent was nurtured and a genuine interest to help our high school students and musicians seek higher education. Adrienne started March for College, Inc.℠ because she wanted prospective college students to gain important information on what’s needed to apply to college, how to find financing and to meet with admissions staff from different colleges at the annual College Recruitment Fair and Band Exposition.
