Meet Ahmanni Recchi, Vocalist & Special Music School Senior


Ahmanni Recchi is a 12th-grade voice major at Special Music School. She says: "Music has always been a part of my life, and I could not imagine a life without it."

Ahmanni first realized she could sing when she was chosen to be part of a gospel choir as a child – and she hasn't stopped since!

Ahmanni's favorite academic classes at SMS are English and history. She is an outstanding student, who loves reading, writing, and learning about cultural interactions. She aspires to pursue a career in anthropology and journalism - and is well on her way to fulfilling this dream! In the fall, Ahmanni will enroll at Smith College.
