Saskia Den Boon | Arts Administration Intern
Originally from Wisconsin, Saskia is currently pursuing a dual degree in vocal performance and English at Boston University. She has a rich musical history as a vocalist, pianist, and aspiring composer. In addition to her studies, Saskia is the Vice President of the acclaimed Boston University Treblemakers a cappella, where she builds the group’s connection to a network of clients and music production companies, and guides the group through competition season. Volunteering for BU’s Choral Department, Saskia is the founder and chair of the publicity committee, deepening connections within BU's creative community. In the past, Saskia apprenticed at Madison Opera under artistic director John DeMain, and has received such awards for her musicianship as the Becknell-Gilbert Choral Award and Superior Awards from the National Piano Federation. When not making music, Saskia enjoys writing her illustrated children’s novel, along with rowing, reading, and learning to speak Dutch. Saskia’s greatest motivator is her passion for storytelling. She believes that stories, told through musical or other means, can inspire empathy and compassion between people from all walks of life.
