Biography

While pursuing her B.A in Music at York College of Pennsylvania (YCP), Danielle Wilt became actively involved in the Development Department raising money for YCP and their students. Motivated to explore the business aspects of music performance, Danielle spent three years learning the basics of managing personnel, operations, scheduling, and an orchestral library as Rehearsal Manager and Librarian for the York Youth Symphony Orchestra. She went on to intern as a Junior Fellow for the Library of Congress (LOC) in their Special Materials Cataloging Division cataloging musical theater excerpts dating from 1861 to 2007, Cecil Bridgewater arrangements of Kurt Weill songs, and George and Ira Gershwin compositions first copyrighted in 2002. During her time at the LOC she visited the United States Marine Band Library which inspired her to pursue a career as an orchestral librarian. Danielle went on to develop the beginnings of her orchestral librarianship training as an Ensemble Librarian at Interlochen Center for the Arts in Michigan for two summers. While pursuing her Master of Music in Flute Performance at University of Maryland, Danielle enjoyed a variety of performing experiences, volunteered in the libraries of the Baltimore and National Symphony Orchestras, and also returned to intern with the US Marine Band Library. In March 2011 Danielle joined the National Symphony Orchestra as Assistant Librarian. Following her graduation in May 2012, Danielle continues to teach and also performs with the Flute Society of Washington's flute choir DCFlutes, which is conducted by NSO's Principal Flutist Aaron Goldman.
