Women’s History Month Profile: Lauren Veronie Curran

March feature! Each week I will profile a different woman or women in music who are particular heroes or inspiration for me.

This week, please welcome to the stage

MS LAUREN VERONIE CURRAN!

Lauren Veronie Curran is cool not just because we share a name, or because we went to school together at North Texas. She’s cool because she’s following her dreams boldly and without apology. She’s cool because she rocks at euphonium and she wants to share it with you.

Lauren studied with Dr Brian Bowman at UNT, and in 2008 won a position in the US Army Field Band. Since taking the chair she has toured worldwide and performed to countless audiences, bringing her unique joy and energy for music to her listeners.

So far this month I’ve featured a jazz artist, an orchestral performer, and a solo artist/teacher. But for those looking for careers in music, you can often look no further than your country’s military bands. They offer competitive salary, benefits, and a chance to see the world and work with musicians at the top of their fields. Lauren’s career is a good example of what you can do with the Army behind you.

Her blog is insightful, inspirational, and hilarious. You should check it out.

Meanwhile, here’s Lauren performing “Midnight Euphonium” by Goff Richards, with her own US Army Field Band.

  1. Hmm it looks like your site ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I wrote and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.

    I too am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to
    the whole thing. Do you have any suggestions for newbie blog
    writers? I’d genuinely appreciate it.

    1. Hello! Glad you are enjoying the blog. The best thing for me to keep this blog active has been to establish a weekly routine for posting. So even if there are weeks when I only get out the weekly roundup, I know I have to do it and that it keeps things active. When I want to do a series, like the Women’s history month posts, I try to plan their content in advance and set a posting schedule for them to keep myself on track. Hope that’s helpful!

  2. Heya i’m for the primary time here. I came
    across this board and I in finding It really helpful &
    it helped me out a lot. I hope to give something again and aid others such as you aided me.
