Corrina Albright - Lawrence Youth String Orchestra
Corrina Albright, teacher-conductor of the Lawrence Youth String Orchestra (LYSO), spent seven formative years as a student playing viola in the Milwaukee Youth Symphony Orchestra (MYSO) and is an enthusiastic advocate for the empowering experience youth ensemble training provides for young musicians. Albright holds a Bachelor of Music degree from the Eastman School of Music, where she studied with George Taylor. She completed Suzuki teacher training for violin at the School for Strings in New York City and received teaching certification from Lawrence University. Albright currently teaches K-6 general music and orchestra at Appleton Public Montessori. She is a member of the Wisconsin Music Educators Association (WMEA), the American String Teachers Association (ASTA) and the Suzuki Association of the Americas (SAA).
Before returning to her home state of Wisconsin in 2016, Albright maintained teaching studios in Croton-on-Hudson, NY and Brooklyn, NY for ten years, where she worked to create a musical learning culture that built and nurtured community through multiple strands of cultural and generational connections/partnerships within her students’ home neighborhoods. In New York City, Albright enjoyed performing viola with such diverse groups and performing artists as the Lyrica Chamber Orchestra, Paragon Ragtime Orchestra, Alan Ferber Nonet, Sufjian Stevens, My Brightest Diamond, Shakira, and Alexi Murdoch. In Appleton, Albright has performed as a substitute in the viola section of the Fox Valley Symphony Orchestra and formerly coached viola and violin sections for Youth Orchestra and Concert Orchestra of the Fox Valley Youth Symphony. She is an active participant in the music ministry at St. Joseph’s Parish in Appleton.
