Hayley Kalen is a junior at UTA. She has been a member of the marching band, the Mav Brass pep band, and concert band in her time here. As a member of the marching band, she was selected as one of the drum majors, one of the highest honors awarded to a band member. When she isn’t performing with her bandmates, Hayley practices her solo repertoire. When I sat down to talk with her, she said that being able to explore new composers in her solo work was her favorite part of being in the music program here at UTA.
