Caris Gagnon ’19 (Soprano)

caris

Caris Renée Derby Gagnon is soprano and native of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Caris has a deep love for music and she also plays the flute for the Wind Ensemble (PUWE), sings for the Gospel Ensemble (PUGE), and participates in the worship teams of PEF and PFA. In addition, Caris enjoys playing tennis and doing yoga for exercise. One of the unique things about Caris (pronounced “kah–riss”) is her name, which is the Greek word for ‘grace’. Due to the fact that many people accidentally pronounce her name as “k AE –r–ihs”, she is always prepared to provide such persons with the correct pronunciation, along with a reminder that she is currently the only student at Princeton with that name.
