“Upon receiving an opportunity to work as an intern this summer at Guild Hall, my expectations were initially probably a little lower than they should’ve been. I was unaware of how awesome the program actually was, how talented these artists were, and how much exposure I’d receive that could benefit and inspire me in my own artistic endeavors. 
———————–
Having constant backstage access and being able to watch the process has been enlightening. As a trained classical pianist my entire life, I was exhilarated to meet Philip Glass, and see concerts by Kronos Quartet, Buddy Guy, Rosanne Cash, G.E. Smith, film discussions moderated by Alec Baldwin, comedy with Mo Amer, and creative conversations with Questlove and Mark Ronson, or Alan Alda and Laura Brown. 
———————–
There’s no better way to phrase this: it’s just cool to see artists do their thing, whether that “thing” means singing, acting, hosting, or presenting a film. It’s the industry I want to be involved in (film/television particularly), so this whole paid internship has been extremely worthwhile.”
