A graduate of White Mountains High School, she studies bassoon with A.J. Coppola and is the daughter of Ned and Tawnya Finkel of Lancaster.

Finkel will also represent Plymouth State University as a member of the New England Intercollegiate Band, along side Kyle Quirion , a first-year music education major and saxophonist from Derby, Vt.

Finkel says “It’s a great opportunity to play in a band that’s filled with selected talent from all through out New England. I’m very happy to have had a chance to enter a solo competition and to get to the top three.”
