Mara Klein

Performance Specialist

Mara is a life-long bandie, hailing from the Minneapolis, Minnesota area. She started piano as a five-year-old and then began squawking on the clarinet in fifth grade. As she got older, music became a large part of her life. Mara played for four years in the Minnesota Youth Symphonies and then went on to play for four years in the St. Olaf College Band. During her time in the St. Olaf Band, she feels lucky to have had the opportunity to tour three times domestically and once to Japan.

After graduating from St. Olaf in 2011, she spent one year living in Singapore doing sociological research at Duke-National University of Singapore Graduate Medical School. While there, she played in a local community band and traveled extensively throughout Southeast Asia. Now back in the U.S., Mara is excited to have the opportunity to combine her two passions of music and travel to help other groups create wonderful memories!
