2020 Senior Spotlight - AYLA LANTZ

Today, we feature a graduating senior from the woodwind section: AYLA LANTZ.

Ayla is a senior in Arapahoe county and a part of DYAO since 2018.  A member of YAO, Ayla is a flute player and a student of Tamara Maddaford.  Upon graduating, Ayla plans to attend the University of Colorado - Boulder. She received a scholarship to be a Flute Performance Major and will study with Christina Jennings. 

When asked what DYAO means to her, she responded: "I am forever thankful for DYAO for it has pushed me to practice, learn new repertoire, make new friends, and become a better person. DYAO has been so much fun the past two years!"

We are so happy for you!  Go Buffs!
