Discover how the Lark helped board member, Emily Case find her place in the community!
I got connected with The Lark through a dear roommate of mine, Laura Bernero. We were both going through large transitions, college graduation for me and moving from Hastings to Colorado for her. I was planning on sticking around Hastings for the time being and thought, why not? I didn’t put too much thought into it and I hadn’t even attended a show at the time (although I had been inside The Lark at a Hastings College event before). Looking back, I had no idea what I was getting myself into.
I mean that in the very best way, though! I’ve now been a part of The Lark family for a year now and been a part of more than I could have ever imagined. I’ve assisted with shows, designed promotional material for The Listening Room, and helped with online presence. The last year has flown by and I’m VERY excited to continue and be a part of this organization.
The main reason The Lark resonates with me so deeply is that they have such a deep, undying love for music and the arts—I could not be more in my element. I have played the flute for over ten years and also love playing guitar and bass (I have a special place in my heart for jazz music). The arts are so important to me, and so important to a community. I love being a part of an organization whose mission is to promote this every single day.
I’m very excited to watch The Lark continue to grow while I serve on the board here and know that I played a small but tangible part in that growth.
