    Natalie Slack ('14, B.A. Music - Classical Performance)

    As a UVM student, I double majored in English and Music and was fortunate enough to study piano with Paul Orgel for four years. I also had the opportunity to intern with the Lane Series, which inspired me to try and combine my areas of interest into a career in arts administration. I started working as an editor in the Marketing and Creative Services department at Carnegie Hall the summer after I graduated. I edit and project manage a wide range of print and digital materials, from program notes and bios for our daily Playbill programs to curriculum books and marketing materials. I currently specialize in working on projects related to the Weill Music Institute, the music education and social impact programs arm of Carnegie Hall.
