Hey everyone! My name is Blair Smith-Herbert, and I am a 3rd year music performance major. My pronouns are he/him. This is my first year as a Student Mentor! Aside from that, I’m also the Director of Communications for the Music Students Association, for the second year.
Here at York, I play the Bass Trombone in the Wind Ensemble, Symphony Orchestra, and Jazz Orchestra. Outside of York, I play in the Toronto Youth Wind Orchestra, who recently performed at Carnegie Hall, in New York.
I chose to study at York because of the freedom and flexibility of the music program. As I mentioned, I’m in both jazz and classical ensembles, and that’s exactly what I want to be doing after university.
