Name: Andrew Jabara

Class of 2018

Andrew is a junior majoring in Economics and minoring in Education. He has been playing in orchestras for twelve years, starting in the fourth grade, and has been a member of SSO since his freshman year. This year, Andrew is a leader in the community as Co-President of the SSO committee. He likes to play the violin because it “creates the song and soul of the orchestra”.

What superpower would you have and why?
I would want to be able to use telekenesis, because it would make things a lot easier to move around (relatable). Also, it would be nice to not get out of bed at night to turn off the lights!

Why are you excited to go on tour?
I have been waiting since freshman year to go on tour and think it will be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, especially since the SSO will be one of the first groups at Stanford to visit Cuba in recent memory. I am also excited to learn about Cuban and Mexican culture and to practice conversational Spanish.

What is your favorite SSO memory?
My favorite SSO memory was being woken up early in the morning by loud shouting and banging on my door – rollouts! That first moment when Bright [a violist in SSO] said “welcome to orchestra!”, and subsequently meeting all the other freshmen over breakfast, made me realize that I had been accepted into an amazing community.
