Marta Plominska (Music) was recently awarded an Aspire2STEAM scholarship. Aspire2STEAM.org provides educational scholarships and mentoring to young women and girls who are working toward careers that require education in science, tech, engineering, the arts, or math (STEAM). Plominska is a post-doctoral fellow in flute performance at UNLV, having just completed her doctorate in flute performance, also at UNLV.
“Marta is an incredibly gifted musician with a long list of honors and awards from competitions in the U.S. and abroad,” said Cheryl O’Donoghue, CEO at Aspire2STEAM.org. “Her work to inspire young musicians, as well as bring works from female composers to life on stages around the world gains an enthusiastic standing ovation from Aspire2STEAM!”
Originally from Poland, Plominska has been seriously studying flute since the age of 10. She has been actively participating in music in the Las Vegas area since she moved there in 2017 and teaches Flute Ensemble, Flute Applied lessons, and Music Appreciation at UNLV part-time. She adjudicates many live events in Las Vegas, such as the Nevada Music Educators Association Solo and Ensemble Competition, Silver State Competition, and Honors Band auditions. Said Plominska, “I am always sharing my knowledge with young musicians, encouraging them to set their goals higher and higher every day.”
