ABOUT OUR KEYNOTE SPEAKER
Keynote speaker Josephine Cripps grew up in the welcoming dark of the great movie palaces and revival houses of Los Angeles. At UCLA, she earned her MFA in Motion Pictures & Television then worked in story development for production companies.
Once she had children, she discovered that working with kids was far more satisfying than working with executives, and she began teaching history, English, and theater in Seattle Schools. Currently she teaches at Licton Springs K-8, the only Native-focused school in Seattle Public Schools.
Every summer Jo returns to the welcoming dark—this time with Screenwriting and Film Studies students at the University of Washington Summer Youth Program.
about our performers
Heard on the popular radio programs Performance Today and Northwest Focus Live, saxophonist Soren Hamm has performed repertoire spanning the Renaissance through the Avant-garde in concerts across North America. He is the only person to win both the solo and (with the Equus Saxophone Quartet) ensemble categories of the Frances Walton Competition, and was a winner of the Northwest MTNA Competitions on multiple occasions. Soren is an avid promoter of new music for saxophone. In addition to dozens of solo and chamber premieres, he has performed by invitation at the Bowling Green New Music Festival, Ball State New Music Festival, and the New Music Gathering. He is a founding member of Onomatopoeia, the world’s first flute/saxophone/horn trio, and helped commission the first original repertoire for this combination of instruments.
Soren teaches on the faculty at Pierce College Puyallup and maintains a private studio in Seattle, WA. He holds degrees from Bowling Green State University (MM) and the University of Oregon (BM) – graduating from the latter with the distinction of Outstanding Undergraduate Performer in Woodwinds; he also completed music education studies at Western Washington University, and was named a winner of that school’s Concerto Competition. Soren’s teachers include John Sampen, Idit Shner, Fred Winkler, and Timothy McAllister.
Joan Lundquist has served as a collaborative pianist for Seattle area musicians and organizations for 30 years. Since moving to the area from Humboldt State University in northern California, where she was staff accompanist, Joan has worked with the Northwest Boychoir, Seattle Choral Company, has taught at Seattle University and Northwest University, and has worked with several area private music teachers. Ms. Lundquist is the rehearsal accompanist for the Seattle Choral Company and retired as the Director of Music at Immanuel Lutheran Church in downtown Seattle. Joan can be seen on many of the LMC’s Public Concerts programs on LMC’s YouTube channel, and has also performed for LMC’s Music In Schools program.
