Alumna Brittany Musumeci was killed in a car accident in Florida on Sept. 26. She graduated from UWSP with a music degree.
“I worked closely with Brittany in her years here. She was in the UWSP Symphony Orchestra, Opera Orchestra and was a member of the Central Wisconsin Symphony Orchestra’s Scholarship Quartet and CWSO. Her musical gifts were prodigious but what made her special were her personal traits: she was warm, caring, kind and considerate. She went out of her way to help people feel appreciated and loved. We were talking back stage once about her Cuban roots and how she was experimenting with cooking. The day next she brought me some of her favorite Cuban foods that she had made after we talked. She went out of her way to do these small gestures. She is greatly missed,” said Patrick Miles, horn professor and orchestra conductor.
