Meet Carol Sifuentes, composer & 2018 Special Music School graduate


Carol Sifuentes is a recent graduate of Special Music School, where she majored in composition. She says: “SMS offers a one-of-a-kind education that creates a unique teen. We are performers, listeners, and open-minded community members. I’m glad I got to spend my youth in this environment."

Carol began music lessons in the 3rd grade and started to compose soon after. In just her first year of training, the New York Philharmonic performed one of her pieces!

Carol is thankful for Special Music School and its community "full of kind peers and fun teachers" for giving her the challenges and support she needed before enrolling at Baruch College this fall.

Gifts of all sizes make a difference! Whether you can give $100, $1,000 or $10,000, your support will create even more musical opportunities for students like Carol.
