our student musicians
UNMUTE's student board consists of teenage students (8th to 12th grade) who hold a steadfast belief that music has the power to heal and unite all people. Not only do they volunteer extensively, but they also facilitate and oversee the planning of UNMUTE's projects, events, and outreach activities.
Krystal is a junior at Centennial High School, Maryland. She has played piano since the age of 4 and clarinet since the age of 11, and she is currently a part of the MCYO Philharmonic and Centennial Wind Ensemble. Other than music, she holds a special love for earl grey tea, playlists with obscure music artists, books, and stationery.
Zoey is a senior at River Hill High School, Maryland and she has been playing viola for 9 years. She’s currently a part of Peabody Prep/Performance Academy, Peabody Youth Orchestra, and the RHHS GT Orchestra. In her free time, she likes to read and walk her dogs!
