Maren is currently earning her Bachelor's Degree in Music Performance at the University of Texas at Arlington. She started playing violin at six years old and, after years of playing as a hobby, knew in high school that it was something that she wanted to pursue as a career. While at UT Arlington, she has been section leader multiple times, been awarded Outstand Music Freshman, and earned multiple music scholarships, as well as been fortunate to have many fantastic performing opportunities. One of her most memorable experiences was playing as section leader in the college’s production of the operetta, “The Pirates of Penzance.” Maren is interested in all types of music, from classical to classic rock, pop to folk, and everything in between. She loves sharing her passion for music with others in any way possible."
