More than Music

Music was always Adelaide Fuller ’17’s choice as a major, but she wanted a liberal arts school, not a conservatory.

"The beautiful thing about a Hamilton music education is that I get to grow in so many ways that do not include music, and the community is a nurturing and supportive one,” says Fuller, whose focus is vocal performance. She’s taken English and history courses and wants to challenge herself with science or econ. She did a College-funded summer internship at Brooklyn Bowl, a music venue in Williamsburg.

“Not only have I been exposed to all sorts of cool music, but I’ve learned so much about the intricacies of the music industry: managing social media and the website, researching and contacting potential acts, money management, risk-taking, etcetera,” she says.

Fuller is active in the extracurricular music scene: the Hamiton College Choir, the College Hill Singers chamber choir, the College Jazz Band. And she’s a member of the Hamiltones, a co-ed a cappella group. She will be its music director when she returns from a semester in Ireland. Fuller has lots of ideas about what she might do after she graduates. Her main interests at the moment: performing, choral conducting, studying the role of women in the music industry, learning more about the psychological effects of music on humans and – eventually – teaching.
