Norfolk State University
Greetings! My name is Vinze Patrice Laurden, I am a senior Political Science Major with an English Minor at Norfolk State University. I currently serve and march for the Norfolk State University Spartan "Legion" Marching Band. I began my musical journey when I was in third grade, the grade where we were allowed to play instruments. I picked violin , even though truthfully, I wanted to play piccolo. Eventually I picked up the clarinet and I could not put it down since then. At my university I am a part of the Symphonic Band where I play the Bass Clarinet, I have also been in the Pep Band and Jazz Ensemble at one point. I am the current President for the Iota Xi Chapter of Kappa Kappa Psi National Honorary Band Fraternity and have been in this organization since Spring 2020. Being a part of the band program is something I have the utmost pride in, and I wish to make sure it thrives beyond me tenure.
