A Girl and Her Ukulele

In this post we'll highlight Emma Hall, a 2016 Herron High School graduate taking a gap year to travel and return to her second home, the Harrison Center.


Emma has grown up among artists in her mom's HCA studio making her a long-standing member of the Harrison Center community. As a Herron upperclassman she had an internship with artist Allison Ford, and now returns as a music intern. Inspired by Indianapolis cornerstones like the Indy 500, as well as HCA programs such as Pre-Enactment and porch parties, Emma will write one place-based song per week. Writing and performing songs is already familiar to her, a many time Foundry performer, but producing and recording is new territory for Emma.

The Harrison Center has always been a part of Emma's life, and she loves the environment and "culture of creating." Personally, Emma, "tries to do a little bit of everything," artistically and enjoys engaging in writing, drawing, painting, cooking, music, and jewelry. She is a problem solver, and passionate about resolving difficulties, with which she became quite experienced while spending the past four months in Argentina. Some of her favorite musicians include The Killers and The Strokes, and she enjoys the TV shows Adventure Time and 30 Rock.
