Freddie Blood, Settlement alumna and former chamber music student of Shirley Curtiss, won a Silver Medal as part of the woodwind quintet QuinTexas in the Senior Wind Division of the Fischoff National Chamber Music Competition. The ensemble also includes Charlotte Daniel (flute), Nicholas Councilor (clarinet), Laura McIntyre (bassoon), and Rose Valley (horn). 

Freddie appeared as a guest soloist with the Trowbridge Chamber Orchestra in 2012, and she was featured, along with the rest of the Blood family, in the Fall 2012 issue of the Notes newsletter. Congratulations, Freddie!
