Student Speaker

Maitri White is so excited to receive her Bachelor of Music in vocal performance and a minor in performing arts management and entrepreneurship from the University of Michigan, where she has been fortunate to study with Daniel Washington. Originally from Marquette, Michigan, Maitri has always recognized that the arts and social justice are intertwined. She believes that to create a sustainable, fulfilling life as an artist, one must cultivate a community as well as a career.

During her time at Michigan she served as the executive director of Project SOAR, an educational outreach organization focused on the arts. She also had the opportunity to produce and perform several recitals centering composers of the African Diaspora. This summer, she looks forward to returning to live performance as a part of the chorus for Michigan Opera Theatre’s Cavalleria Rusticana in Concert, further exploring virtual performance as “Third Wood Sprite” in Dvořák’s Rusalka, and serving as director of development for Opera NexGen.
