Married musicians made their way into Michigan Tech Magazine.

Andrea (Walvatne) ’12 and Kristopher Falasco ’13
Music (and love) was in the air when Andrea, who plays clarinet, and Kris, who plays saxophone and oboe, met in the Michigan Tech Wind Symphony. When they married in Wausau, Wisconsin, the couple infused their home state with Michigan Tech pride. “We served pasties and KBC beer, and our grand entrance song was “2001,” the same song the Pep Band plays every game.” Paying homage to their beloved Copper Country, Andrea and Kris’s wedding bands are even made of copper.

Liz (Cloos) ’12 and Patrick Dreyer ’12
Liz and Patrick fell in love before classes even started. The pair hit it off over card games during LeaderShape, Tech’s intensive week long leadership development institute at the Ford Center in Alberta.
