Heather Kirkconnell is a 2011 graduate of Oberlin with a BA in French and a BM in Organ Performance. She just got back from spending two years studying music in France.
The French table and Francophone house programs especially helped me improve my level of speaking and understanding, so that when I arrived in France, I was already nearly fluent. I had a fantastic time combining my love of French and music while in Paris. It made for a fantastic experience.
