Elena Kraus '19


Elena Kraus plays the clarinet in the orchestra, and also serves on the board as a librarian. They are studying geology, and working towards a Five College Certificate in coastal and marine science. Elena hopes to someday have a career related to oceanography. They feel that a women’s orchestra is important because women have been so traditionally underrepresented in classical music. For centuries, the classical establishment has overlooked the genius of women such as Louise Farrenc and Fanny Mendelssohn; to give women a platform in classical music today is to honor the legacies of women who were once denied a platform because of their sex.
