About this Article
The endless hours Jean Laurenz spent cooped up rehearsing have helped propel her across the globe. The Prospect High School grad has played in Hong Kong, Colorado, Maine and Texas, helped run music clinics in South Africa and backed Kanye West. But she's most at home at Arlington Park, where the track bugler has become one of the track's most familiar (human) faces. "I just love it here," Jean said. "I'd love to have my summers off so I can keep doing this."
