Senior Spotlight 2022: LeQuincia Brown

Name: LeQuincia Brown

Instrument: Cello


How long have you been involved in music?

I have been involved in music for 18 years. My whole life has been centered around music since I was born. I had many instruments at my disposal at a very young age. Then I watched a cellist play a complicated concerto, and I fell in love with the instrument I now call mine. 


Why is music important to you?

Music is important to me because it has been a core part of me for as long as I can remember. I cannot imagine myself as anything but a musician. I continue to pursue this passion because I feel that I can truly make a difference in this field. 


Tell us about your time at The bART.

The bART has introduced me to amazing people who I will miss after I leave. I have learned from my peers and also figured out that their styles are their own, and my style is just as artistic and beautiful. It has also taught me time management skills and how to balance multiple things at once.


Where will you be going from here?

I will be attending college in the fall as a Music Education major. I want to continue performing and keep composing music for people who want to advance themselves and people like me. I want to make a difference in the music world and be a role model for people everywhere.


A message from LeQuincia:

I’d like to shout out my best friends and eternal  inspirations, the entire Conservatory student body. You all have made this experience absolutely fabulous, and I hope I can stay in contact with you all. I’d also like to shout out my outstanding cello teacher, Krassi Figg. Thank you for putting up with me and pushing me to constantly grow. I promise I’ll make you and the rest of the bART proud.
