The Graduate Center Music Program is pleased to congratulate D.M.A. cellist Caroline Bean Stute on being selected to join “The President’s Own” U.S. Marine Band as a staff sergeant, the oldest professional musical organization in the country. Founded in 1798 by an Act of Congress, the 160-member organization is closely tied to the White House, performing at presidential inaugurations, state funerals, state dinners, arrival ceremonies, and approximately 500 other high-level events every year. “Caroline is a superb young cellist,” said Professor Norman Carey, Acting Executive Officer of the Ph.D./D.M.A. Programs in Music. “I am delighted that she has gotten this opportunity, but not surprised that it has been offered to her, as I know how gifted she is . . . We couldn’t be more proud of her.”
