Jacky Killian: How old are you, and what year are you currently in?
Collin Hancock: I’m 22, and I’m a senior.
Jacky: What is your concentration?
Collin: I’m an English literature major with a minor in creative writing.
Jacky: What does it mean to be a English Major to you?
Collin: I’ve always wanted to be around people that have a desire to express themselves, listen to others and grow. I think the English major promotes that sort of behavior.
Jacky: What draws you to music?
Collin: I’ve got a specific taste in music, and I think, if you’re really into something, you’ll have a desire to recreate it in some small way. I write my own music because it’s something I feel compelled to do. Even if it’s not always good, I did it, and it’s out there, and I can move on.
Jacky: What compelled you to perform at the Fall Festival this year?
Collin: It was a spur of the moment decision. A friend told me about the auditions because they thought I might be interested, and I decided I’d give it a shot.
Collin will be performing at the PCAL Fall Festival this Wednesday at the Colonnade. Take the time to listen to some music and have a little fun.
Get ready for the Fall Festival!!
