Leah Dunbar is a percussionist from Hillsboro, New Hampshire. Her primary focus is marimba, which she discovered during her freshman year of high school. At Kenyon, she is a grateful recipient of a Music Scholarship, studies percussion with Cary Dactyl, and has been a member of the Percussion Ensemble, Symphonic Wind Ensemble and Asian Music Ensemble. She was featured in the 2017 and 2018 Angela Waite winter recitals, and with the Knox County Symphony as the winner of the 2018 Young Musicians Competition. In the fall of 2019, she performed a recital while abroad in Vienna, Austria under the instruction of Joachim Muring.
Leah is especially passionate about the marching arts, having spent four years as a front ensemble performer in the world championship winning Spartans Drum and Bugle Corps, including two years as a section leader. She has taught numerous marching programs, and currently teaches middle and high school percussion ensembles in the Olentangy Liberty school district. Her interest in the marching arts has also inspired her to
undertake an honors project, which will be presented in March. After Kenyon, Leah hopes to pursue a career with some combination of music performance, education, and arts administration.
