After Lewis & Clark

Our graduates go on to pursue careers in music and many other fields. They attend prestigious graduate schools, such as Princeton, University of Michigan, Indiana University, the Royal Academy of Music, College of William and Mary, and UCLA.

Below you will find bios of former music students who have gone on to do some pretty exciting things after leaving Lewis & Clark.

Alumni Highlight: Chloë May

I originally came to Lewis & Clark with a piano scholarship, but no plans to major in music. However, as a life-long pianist and someone who always had a passion for the arts, I found it difficult to stay away from the music building and eventually declared myself a music major.

Alumni Highlight: Stefan Fiol

Stefan Fiol (BA, Music, 1998) concentrated on piano performance under Anne Miller during his time at Lewis & Clark, but was set on a career path in ethnomusicology after taking musicology courses from Aaron Beck and Gil Seeley, anthropology courses from Diane Nelson, and the gamelan ensemble with Pak Widiyanto.

Alumni Highlight: Charlie Ahlquist

My name is Charlie Ahlquist, and I graduated from Lewis & Clark College with my BA in Music and Psychology in May of 2007.  The music department, with its wonderful faculty and staff and all of my fellow musicians, was the nexus of my collegiate experience.
