Our “Featured Musician” for this edition of the Journal is none other than our very own, Christy Dyer – another “original” member of our Symphony.
Christy began her music career taking violin lessons in the fourth grade at Greenwood Elementary School. She continued her string career through Lee’s Summit High School. The culminating experiences of her high school career were performing in Vienna Austria at the International Youth and Music Festival and performing at the orchestra’s first appearance and performance at Midwest International Band and Orchestra Clinic in Chicago, Illinois.
Christy continued her music studies at the University of Central Missouri but stopped when she left school. Like so many other musicians in our Symphony, she got out her violin and enthusiastically joined our Symphony in 2003.
In addition to attending the University of Central Missouri, Christy attended and graduated from Heritage College with an associate degree of Occupational Studies in Esthetics in October of 2012.
From the time Christy was age one and one half, she had a love for horses and the pleasures of riding. While she does not own a horse at this time, she still loves to ride horses. She also enjoys crafting, sewing, knitting, jewelry making and up-cycling.
Her very favorite things to do in life encompass her daughter, Veronica. “Seeing things through her eyes are wondrous!”
In her real life avocation, Christy is employed as an Operations Consultant for Sephora where she assists many people for proper skin care and cosmetic needs. After almost 15 years in the graphic design business, she still assists our Symphony with posters, brochures, flyers and etc.
Christy is a lady of many and varied talents. We are certainly happy that music is one of them and that she is a member of our Symphony!
