The Conwell-Egan Catholic senior has had a fondness for music since she began taking singing lessons at Holy Trinity (Morrisville) in the second grade. Her mother (and piano teacher), holding a trio of degrees in Organ Performance, Music Therapy, and Music Education, is credited for fostering that love.
“When it comes down it, my mom is the reason I love music. She’s always exposed me to new things, whether I liked it or not, and that’s what opened my eyes in the first place,” Abby said. “We have such a connection; we’re kind of like a team. If I’m really frustrated or not getting something right, I can go to her and she’ll reassure me that I don’t have to be perfect and that I will continue learning. I do the same for her.”
