Thanks for an AMAZING semester everyone! Pyle is now closed til the fall.
After earning a music composition degree from Oberlin Conservatory and training at the Jacques Lecoq School of Physical Theatre in Paris, Aurora Nealand ’01, a saxophonist, clarinetist and singer who grew up in California, set out to bicycle across the country. She stopped, and stayed, in New Orleans in 2005. Enamored of traditional jazz from a young age, she apprenticed with several bands from the city’s Frenchmen Street-centered traditional jazz revival, including the Panorama Jazz Band, VaVaVoom and the New Orleans Moonshiners.
Do you have anyone in particular you would like to thank?
My mom, dad, and sister. They’re always so supportive of me and let me move at my own pace (which is generally a more relaxed pace). They’ve always trusted that I know what’s best for myself as a singer and as a young adult and are always willing to stand by my side for what I think is best for me… even if, for now, it’s taking a break from education to raise lions.

Clare Leighton - Emily Brontë’s Wuthering Heights
Known for her illustrations of nineteenth-century British novels by authors like Thomas Hardy, Claire Leighton also wrote prolifically on the virtues of rural life in an increasingly urban and industrial world. This series of wood engravings for the 1931 Random House edition of Wuthering Heights combines Leighton’s cherished English countryside with the brooding moors of the novel’s romanticized Yorkshire landscape. Written in 1846, Wuthering Heights was the only novel by Emily Brontë, a member of the famous Brontë family of writers. Leighton’s series of twelve illustrations depicts both crucial moments in the book’s narrative, which chronicles the passionate but doomed love story of Catherine Earnshaw and Heathcliff, as well as tangential episodes and characters.
These works are on view in the exhibition “Representing the Word: Modern Book Illustrations” through July 31.

What do you like to do when you’re not singing?
When I’m free I love going shopping, watching movies, wine tasting, going to the gym, hanging out with my cats, cooking, and I have tons of fun going to parties.
