Sydney Streightiff, Instrumental Music Class of 2015, is now a junior at UC Irvine majoring in Music Performance. She plays 2nd oboe in the orchestra, hoping to move to 1st oboe this year. She also plays the English horn, is part of a wind ensemble and plays with a flutist and clarinetist in a chamber group. In addition to her studies she serves as an Arts Ambassador at UC Irvine, and interned last summer at Bocal Majority at Pepperdine. Bocal Majority, which started in Texas and has since gone worldwide, is a "double reed" camp, where middle and high schoolers can enhance their proficiency. 

After graduating, Sydney intends to pursue a Masters in Performance and she will most likely audition to play in Cirque du Soleil. Her dream job would be to play in a symphony and teach at a  university.
