Hi all! I'm Alexandra Armellino- Alex for short. I'm from the South Chicagoland area, and currently I reside in Bloomington-Normal Illinois. In Blo-No I attend Illinois State University as a music business major. Before college I attended high school at Marian Catholic and was a member of their marching band as a clarinet player. Throughout my time spent there, I became section leader, an officer, and placed 29th chair in the IMEA All-State Honor Band. I also spent time volunteering at a special needs organization in South Chicago Heights co-running their music program. The experiences I had in high school and the prestigious band program at Marian led me to ISU to pursue music even further. Now I am involved in StuRecords, The Music Business Organization, and I am an active member of Chi Omega. To further explain StuRecords, it is the first student-run business at ISU as well as the first record label. As A&R of the label, most of my time and focus is currently spent with that. In addition to my extracurriculars, my primary instrument is still the clarinet and I am involved in a few ensembles in the school of music. After college I intend to pursue a career in entertainment event planning, production and/or artist management.
