Aubrey attended the 2013 Berklee Five-Week program in Boston, MA. She was part of the Tower of Power ensemble under the direction of Bobby Gallegos. During the final concert at the Berklee Performance Center, she was thrilled and extremely grateful to be awarded a full four-year scholarship to attend Berklee College of Music beginning in the Fall of 2014!!!
Thanks to a generous scholarship grant, Interplay Jazz & Arts Camp in Woodstock, VT was able to gather alumni members of 2012/2013 Grammy Camps from all over the US. The students formed a Jazz Combo and performed a concert at the Norman Williams Public Library under the direction of Armen Donelian (The New School).

It was a great night at the Berklee Alumni Mixer at the Hard Rock Cafe in Boston. Aubrey's father graduated in 1983 and her grandfather graduated in 1956 and taught there for 30 years. Aubrey had the opportunity to meet Berklee President, Roger Brown and many Berklee alums and faculty members. The new chair of the bass department, Steve Bailey, played an incredible performance along with fellow bassist, John Patitucci.
