The Sounds of a Starr
For my final culminating experience project, I am planning to arrange and record the wonderful compositions of my mother and Berklee graduate, Lori Starr. Sadly, about three and a half years ago she passed away but left an incredible legacy for me to carry on. Starting in high school, she was an extremely hard working musician who performed, taught, and then took on the job as a full-time mom while continuing to pursue her passion for composing. I remember very clearly hearing her visions for arrangements and instrumentation. Recording her original music was always her dream, but because of her competing responsibilities it never became reality.
