My Winthrop Experience
StrokisDaniel Strokis
Daniel Strokis' professors describe him as an eager and talented young composer who truly enjoys writing music. The Fort Mill native is among the first students in a newly forged music composition track in the bachelor of music degree started in fall 2008. Music faculty members Ron Parks and Mark Lewis hoped their composition students would make their presence known in the region. They did not anticipate that success would materialize so swiftly.

Produced by Winthrop's Department of Theatre and Dance and the Department of Music, "Once Upon a Mattress" is a sillier version of Hans Christian Andersen's "The Princess and the Pea."
