Choir student, freshman Shawndi Snider, talks music with GENESIS.

GENESIS: Describe the role music plays in your life.

SHAWNDI SNIDER: “This is going to sound cliche’ but it’s honestly an escape for me. When I don’t want to think, I’ll put music in, and forget about it.”

G: How does music inspire you?

SS: “Well, I love to sing. It gives you an open, less sentimental value at the same time.”

G: I’m curious about what you favorite band is.

“I have many, but at the moment, it’s Falling In Reverse.”

G: What is your favorite music genre and why?

SS: “I have to say rock and Country because there is meaning behind it.”

G: What is your favorite song?

SS: “I think ‘Making Mistakes’ is a good one.”

G: How is music important to you?

SS: “It’s a story. Like, you don’t just pay attention to it. You understand it.”

G: Tell me about your proudest or most memorable moment from choir.

SS: “When I did something sort of like an ensemble.”

G: What influenced you into being in choir?

SS: “My brother actually. One time I was listening to music, but I didn’t know the words to the entire song, so I was humming along to it instead. And he yelled at me, saying, “you’re not even singing.” So from then on, I memorized every song I listened to so that I was able to actually sing it. Which is what I do in choir.”

G: Tell me about your plans for after high school.

SS: “I plan to graduate and go to college for a degree in psychology.”
