Unconventional Students at Rice 2021: Elisabeth Pesavento travels the world with her horn
What started as a 10-year-old child’s persistence has become a career for Elisabeth Pesavento ’21. “I told my mom that I really wanted to play the horn,” Pesavento said. “And you know, like all mothers, she’s said, ‘Oh that’s nice. It’s a very beautiful instrument.’ But I just kept asking and kept asking until finally she was like, ‘Wow, I guess she really does want to play the horn.’” After Pesavento finally got her French horn, she traveled the world with the instrument.
