Madison Grimsbo gains place in the United States Marine Band
Madison Grimsbo ’21 recently graduated from the University of Minnesota Morris with a degree in theatre arts. Following a recent audition, she was accepted into for the United States Marine Band through the Musician Enlistment Option Program. At UMN Morris she took individual clarinet lessons with Professor Simon Tillier, performed in Symphonic Winds, and played bass clarinet in a clarinet quartet. Grimsbo was inspired to audition for the band by her father, who stated that she was "pretty good at the clarinet." Grimsbo is grateful to the music faculty for supporting her, even though she was not a music major or minor, and to the Morris campus for providing an environment where she could pursue her passions. She is excited to start this new career and hopes to make her former professors proud.
