Lucinda Morris, Violin
Lucinda is a recent transplant to Montana, moving to the area from Illinois in January 2016. She attended school at the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign, where she earned a bachelors degree in environmental science and played in the Philharmonic Orchestra. She worked for the University for several years, which gave her the opportunity to collaborate on and publish two research papers. Since moving to Montana, Lucinda served two terms in AmeriCorps, working with the Wildlife Conservation Society in Ennis. At the completion of her second term she took a job with Matson's Laboratory in Manhattan, pursuing her goal of working in the field of wildlife conservation.
Lucinda has been playing classical violin for 23 years, starting in the Suzuki program as a child. She joined the Bozeman Symphony last year and has greatly enjoyed getting back into music in her local community, which has also included performances with chamber groups and the Montana Ballet Company. Lucinda hopes to keep playing in the area for years to come, both in the orchestra and other ensembles, and on her own. When she's not busy practicing for the next Symphony concert, Lucinda enjoys spending time outdoors and appreciating the beautiful landscapes of Montana.
