Ten Stony Brook Students Receive Prestigious Fulbright Scholarships

Kelly Smestad

Kelly Smestad

Home town: Massapequa Park, NY
Degree: Doctoral Student in Music

Departmental advisors/research mentors: Jennifer Green, James Austin Smith, Christian Wetzel

Smestad will be researching the differences between European and American oboe reeds and how they influence the pedagogy and performance of music. There is currently a divide between the two schools of thought and little research regarding the differences.  She hopes to bridge these two worlds together so that students and professionals alike will have the opportunity to learn both styles and choose whichever suits their musical esthetic.
