Previous Alumni

Vincent Le graduated from Columbia College in 2021 majoring in music on the pre-medical track. Vincent ran the music therapy program at RCSS which consisted of two parts:

1) Combination of online and in-person volunteering of music as alternative medicine/therapy at local hospitals in NYC including Terence Cardinal Cooke, Mary Manning Walsh, Columbia Medical Center and Mount Sinai Hospital System. Restrictions were based on the accessibility of these medical centers/wards. Musicians come from the existing pool of Columbia and Barnard musicians from the Music Performance Program led by Professor Magdalena Stern-Baczewska.

2) Research project exploring the benefits of music therapy on alleviating stress-related complications in Intensive Care Units - relevant to the crisis of COVID-19, which  overwhelmed ICU’s across the country. Vincent also helped plan the weekly lunches as the Executive Director of Internal Affairs. He was the music director for the Columbia Kingsmen A Capella group, and played alto sax in the Columbia Big Band and small jazz ensembles.
