Erin Truesdell December 1, 2017 Congratulations to Erin Truesdell for being accepted into the Philadelphia Wind Symphony! The Philadelphia Wind Symphony is an auditioned ensemble composed of local professional and semi-professional musicians. Erin was fortunate enough to be invited to audition at the beginning of the 2017-2018 season and was offered a position as an Alto Saxophonist in the ensemble. ABOUT ERIN Erin Truesdell is a junior in Drexel’s Game Design and Production program, pursuing a minor in Music Theory and Composition. Erin enjoys making experimental video games and pushing the limits of what a digital experience can be. She is interested in the great potential that lies at the intersection of arts and technology, and is passionate about the ability of artistic expression to reach individuals on a deeply human level. Her artistic pursuits reach beyond the art of game development, and include both visual and musical components. A saxophonist for more than ten years, Erin performs with three Drexel ensembles (Concert Band, Pep Band, and Jazz Orchestra), as well as the Philadelphia Wind Symphony. She is an aspiring video game composer, and hopes to study composition for media after finishing her degree at Drexel. Erin says about the Music Program: “The Drexel music program has meant a great deal to me since I first set foot on campus. Music has been a vital component of my life for as long as I can remember, and I knew coming in as a freshman that I wanted to continue to study and perform as much as possible, even if I wasn't studying music as a major. The faculty at Drexel have been welcoming and have encouraged me to constantly improve myself while offering some of the best opportunities of my life and providing mentorship that has shaped me as a performer and as a person. My love of music and performance continues to be a driving force in all that I do, and I am so excited to see what lies ahead."
