Rest in peace little drummer girl... 

We are profoundly saddened by the loss of close friend and talented musician, Sarah Papenheim. Sarah’s life was taken from us on Wednesday, December 13 while studying abroad in the Netherlands. Her smile was infectious and brought a light to wherever she was. She was an inspiration to those that knew her. May you rest in peace, little drummer girl, and may justice be served. 

A Go Fund Me has been set up to help bring Sarah home and help with expenses. Please consider donating.
