Most college students in today’s world may have to give up their dream job to pursue a career they aren’t that interested in. They may have to give up music, sports or theater to prepare for the rest of their lives. As 21-year-old Cinnaminson native Evan Fleming continues to go through his college career, the musician and songwriter has chosen his passion as his major. The rising senior at Montclair State University is studying for a bachelor’s degree in music production, and has been able to get his feet wet since a young age. “Music has always been around in my house,” Fleming said. “My dad plays guitar and has played concerts, my mom sings pretty well, and my brother is a graduate assistant at Penn State University also studying music.”
