Violinist Nicole Wendl took part in many memorable performances during her days as a graduate student at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts. Now, as a 2018 Fifth-Year Fellow, she’s working behind a camera offstage to capture the story of the School of Music through compelling videos designed to maximize the string area’s digital footprint and reach.
The fellowship, supported by the Thomas S. Kenan Institute for the Arts at UNCSA, benefits the music school by attracting prospective students to its renowned string programs in new and engaging ways. And it provides Wendl with a more robust resume that will stand out in today’s competitive job market, showcasing not only her musical accomplishments but also her digital media skills.
“As somebody who serves on music search committees all the time, we are constantly looking among the resumes for people who have additional skills and expertise in a particular area, including faculty who are media-savvy,” says Brooks Whitehouse, Associate Professor of Cello at UNCSA.
