Laura Eister '09 performs Neverending
Randolph-Macon College alumna Laura Eister '09 of Williamsport,
Pennsylvania found a creative way to express how she feels about R-MC. A talented
musician, Eister wrote a song that she calls "Neverending." She was asked to perform
the song before her classmates and their families during the
college’s 2009 Baccalaureate service.
“I was inspired to write this song once I realized just how much R-MC means to me,”
Eister said, “I really enjoyed the close connection to professors and the small-school
experience at R-MC.” Eister says she didn’t have a hard time deciding to enroll
at R-MC. Her father (Ronald ’75), brother (Ronald Jr. ’06) and sister (Sarah ’07)
are all alumni.
Eister has been playing the piano since she was eight years old and began writing
her own songs while a senior in high school. Her first experience in a recording
booth was during her last semester at R-MC, when she enrolled in Introduction to
Recording Techniques, taught by Professors Roland Karnatz and Chris Ryder. She received
hands-on training with Bill McElroy at Slipped Disc Audio and Recording Studio in
Ashland, Virginia and was able to professionally record three of her songs, including
Eister graduated from R-MC with a B.A. in philosophy
and a minor in Asian studies.
