A Soldier’s music aspirations
Inspired by his mother’s love of music, Obi Okechukwu is an ROTC cadet and Green-to-Gold (G2G) graduate student at Johns Hopkins University’s Peabody Institute.
Okechukwu’s journey to the Conservatory, world-renowned for its rigorous music and academic program, began in childhood. His mother filled the family home in Dallas, Texas with church song—the genesis of his aspirations as a musician, educator, and future officer in the Army Band.
My latest article is found in Military Families Magazine. Obi was a pleasure to interview and I am proud to have gotten to know him and share his story: http://publications.militaryfamilies.com/publication/?m=58493&i=693509&p=16
