Parry Peacock is a 22-year-old music major at Snow College. He chose to come to Snow because it is inexpensive and it has an amazing music program that has connections to Julliard, where he plans on attending when he is done here. He says, “The music program is freaking awesome. The professors all work together super well, and they teach super clearly. They have very high expectations, which push us more to succeed. Also, they are very willing to help us when we aren’t doing well.”
After high school, Parry came to Snow for a short while, then went on an LDS mission to New York City and served for two years.
Parry is involved in a lot here at Snow. He is in Arise (LDS Institute Choir), wind ensemble, percussion ensemble, a cappella choir, chamber, and in the near future he will most likely perform in the pit orchestra for the upcoming Pirates of Penzance.
When asked if he could go anywhere in the world where would it be, he answered NYC because he wants to go back to visit the people he met on his mission. His other option would be to go to Jerusalem because of all the history it has.
During his free time, he likes to chill with his friends, play music, play video games, or drum while snacking on two of his favorite candy bars: Kit-Kat and Three Musketeers.
Parry is the oldest of five and his favorite family vacation was along the east coast. His family went to North Carolina, New York, Washington D.C., Niagara Falls, and even had a personal tour of the Pentagon.
One of his favorite family traditions is gathering as a family at someone’s house on Thanksgiving because most of the time all of his family, including family that live outside of Utah, come on that one holiday to enjoy spending time together. He said, “This last Christmas break I basically had two family reunions. One for each side of the family, one for my cousin’s endowments for the LDS church, and the other for a cousin getting sealed in an LDS temple to his now wife. This was a rare occasion that I see all of my extended family and have it not being Thanksgiving. I loved it.”
Some random facts about Parry are that his favorite time of year is the fall because of the nice temperature, the colors of the leaves, and his birthday is in the fall. One of his favorite kinds of ice cream is strawberry, although he likes most flavors except vanilla. One thing he loves about himself is his natural talents.
