Artistry, industry and technology

Title & Registration (T&R) band members Jordan Santiago ’19, Dylan Odri ’21, Hector Echevarria ’20 and Kelly Thomas ’20 already have fans all over the globe. Formed during a Music Industry Studies (MIS) class last fall, the group was supported by Albright MIS students who booked and managed performances, recorded music, created a marketing strategy and even contributed to lyrics and musical arrangements. Only two months after forming, T&R released an indie rock single that was played thousands of times on every major streaming service. That single paved the way for T&R to open for Young The Giant at an April festival attended by more than 7,000 people. Check out the group’s EP, released this summer.

It’s an Honor

Several alumni were recognized during an annual Albright College awards dinner in April. Those honored include:

  • Caroline Vazzana ’14: Young Alumni Achievement Award
  • Patricia Fitzgerald ’93: Mary Fry Good ’49 Service to Alma Mater Award
  • Todd Bonsall, D.C. ’88, Brian Nester, D.O. ’84 and Andrea Verdone Gorsenger ’99: Distinguished Alumni Awards
  • Gene W. and Vivien L. (Griesemer) Aulenbach ’64: Jacob Albright Award


More than 90 percent of Albright students who apply to medical school are accepted.

Clearing Financial Hurdles

Thanks to Robin ’93 and Terrence Curtin ’90, two new endowed scholarships established in honor of their parents — Gerald and Sheila Feldman and J. Lawrence and Lynn Curtin — will immediately impact four rising Albright College juniors who maintain good grades and display financial need. The scholarships, two for students studying science and two for business students, are designed to grow along with the students’ need in their senior year.
