She will spend the upcoming school year studying music history at the Franz Liszt Hochschule fur Musik (Franz Liszt School for Music) in Weimar, Germany. She will also conduct research on the music of Anna Amalia, an 18th-century duchess and amateur composer who is credited with fostering Weimar's reputation and influence as a cultural center.
