Trisha Johnson - Music Major

pic_trisha.JPGTrisha Johnson’s passion for music was ignited at a young age. Throughout her life, she has been driven to express herself through her God-given musical abilities. Trisha attended Saltsburg High School in Saltsburg, PA, where she was a member of the both the marching and concert bands, as well as the choir. During that time, she participated in numerous music festivals, nine musicals and four plays. Trisha also shared her time and talent by singing at senior citizen centers and performing the National Anthem at sporting events.

Because of her lifelong love of music, Trisha felt called to pursue a career in this field. She enrolled at Geneva College and is now majoring in music with a concentration in voice. “I wanted to impact others the way music impacted me.”

Since coming to Geneva, she has been making the most of the many opportunities offered here by taking an active role in the college’s concert choir, The Genevans, as well as both the marching and concert bands. She has also performed at the My Generation Night (MGN) talent show and the Broadway Review. “All of these give me the opportunity to give back to God the talents He has blessed me with. I am able to share God’s love in sharing them as well,” she says.

Trisha is grateful for the mentoring she received from music education graduate Lindsay Brothers: “She took me under her wing, showed me what I needed to know, impacted me through her love for music and, most importantly, inspired me.”

She also credits music department chair and band director Professor Don Kephart, known by many students as “Coach,” for providing a great deal of encouragement. She says that his “amazing way of giving his faith, music and ability” motivated her to achieve more than she ever thought she could.

Trisha also values the biblical understanding of music presented in all her classes and ensembles at Geneva. “The Bible always tells us to praise Him; this really means a lot to me.”
