Delaney Rose McMahon, from Phelan, CA, is concentrating in English while pursuing a Certificate in Composition Performance, having written a senior thesis that combines both of these interests: Sapphic Music and Discovering Lesbians. Delaney credits fellow Princeton composer Caroline Shaw with opening their mind to the spirituality of music. Also involved with musical theater as part of the Princeton University Players, they love to sit on the balcony of Jadwin Hall with a cup of tea and a good book!
“Donnacha Dennehy has been the most supportive figure for me, both academically and personally. He is so encouraging, and his bubbly enthusiasm for music rubbed off on me right away. And yes, I did accidentally call him ‘dad’ twice to his face.”
