Please join us in welcoming our newest member of the Music for All Marketing Team, Mackenzie Ziegler! We are very thankful to have Mackenzie joining us this summer as we prepare for Summer Symposium this June! You’ll definitely be hearing more from Mackenzie throughout her semester here with us, but in the meantime, let her introduce herself to you!
My name is Mackenzie Ziegler and I am the new Marketing Intern here at Music for All. I am a senior (yikes!) at Butler University majoring in Arts Administration Music with a minor in Strategic Communications. Essentially, I am double majoring in business administration and music. I study flute under Karen Moratz, current principal flutist with the ISO, and oboe under Malcolm Smith, former principal oboist with the ISO. I am also involved in many organizations at Butler. I am the President of the Butler chapter of Tau Beta Sigma – National Honorary Band Sorority and am the Treasurer of the Butler chapter of Sigma Alpha Iota – International Music Fraternity for Women. I am always very busy, but I wouldn’t have it any other way!
So, obviously, music is kind of my life. I have been playing for 10 years and have been actively involved in marching band for 8. I attended Warsaw Community High School where I was involved in every musical related ensemble that they had, literally. I was in Wind Ensemble, Concert Band, Marching Band, Pep Band, Jazz Band, Clarinet Choir, Flute Choir, and Winter Percussion Ensemble and I loved every minute of it! After graduating in 2011, I began working with the Clay City Imperial Regiment marching band out of Clay City, IN. My uncle, Mark Ziegler, has been the band director there for about 8 years and he wanted me to come to work with the woodwind players. I fully enjoyed that experience and miss it every summer when band time comes around!
When I am not doing something with music you can usually find me watching TV, reading, crafting, playing with my new kitty, Anna, or working my part time job at Starbucks on 86th and Michigan Road in Indianapolis.
