I WORK TO UPLIFT HISTORICALLY UNDERREPRESENTED VOICES BY BRINGING THEIR WORK TO STAGES.
Colton Wansitler is a Michigan-based freelance musician pursuing his Doctorate of Musical Arts and Masters of Arts and Cultural Management at Michigan State University. As an advocate for social justice on and off the performance stage, Colton bridges classical music and community engagement to help children interact with music and be part of the music making process. Ultimately, Colton works to uplift historically underrepresented voices by bringing their work to stages, communities, and programs. As a solo, chamber, and orchestral musician, Colton believes strongly in the power of creating music with friends and the potential that has to change or support the views of those he has the privilege of interacting with.
