“Angie ran the glee club that was my happy place in high school, helping us shape our performances and leaving us room to lead and find our own voices. She is the first person I ever showed one of my original songs to because I trusted her creative vision and was emboldened to write at all by her encouraging spirit. She has continued to champion me even though I’m no longer officially her student, and I am constantly inspired by her passion for the arts. –Talia Lakritz
