FEATURED STUDENT: Aubrey Theobald

Aubrey Theobald

Featuring some of our communities' great high school students.

Bay High senior Aubrey Theobald is making her community a more beautiful and serene place using both her musical and artistic talents.

A cello player with the Bay High Honors quartet, Aubrey’s classical music performances frequently add an elegant touch to local ceremonies and events. Her considerable skill with her instrument earned her a spot on the Ohio Music Educators Association Regional Orchestra, and she is an alternate for the group’s State Orchestra. Aubrey also teaches cello in private lessons, and she performs with the Bay High Orchestra and Pit Orchestra. She also sings with the school's A Cappella Choir.

Aubrey’s artistic talents earned a National Scholastic Gold Key award three years ago, and she was honored for the achievement in a New York City ceremony. She has continued to pursue her interests in photography, painting and sculpting. She was part of a select group of 12 student artists, led by Bay High teacher Tom Schemrich, who sculpted a whale, cast in bronze, that was installed at Normandy Elementary School.

In addition to playing and teaching the cello, Aubrey spends her free time outdoors rollerblading and practicing photography. She is a member of the Bay High Rockettes and the National Honor Society. Through much of high school, Aubrey has worked as a hostess at the Moosehead Saloon in Westlake. She also worked with the Appalachian Service Project weatherproofing homes of low income families in Tennessee during one summer.

Aubrey would like to work on a future service project in the Dominican Republic, where she traveled this past spring with her parents, Bob and Suz, and her twin sister, Rachael. She is looking at a number of potential colleges and is considering attending her older brother Michael’s alma mater, the University of Cincinnati, after she graduates from Bay High. She will major in either art or music education, or perhaps marketing.
