Double tragedy: Promising violinist is killed with sister in Florida road smash

Brittany Musumeci, 23, was a recent music graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.

Her elder sister, Alexis Musumeci, 24, was an Air Force staff sergeant, heading for an assignment in Korea.

Both were killed when their Toyota was hit by a jeep going the wrong way as they returned home from a day out at Disneyland.

The jeep driver was critically injured.

Britanny, seen here with Yo Yo Ma, planned to open a violin teaching studio for underprivileged children.

Her college professor Bernard Zinck said: ‘She was really a special student, very talented, not pretentious, kind, respectful and she loved to perform… She had a very attractive, natural sound.’

May the two sisters rest in peace.

  • Brittany was a dear student in my UWM symphony orchestra… Brahms Symphony no.1 at our next week’s concert will be dedicated to her…

  • The man who killed them was not supposed to be behind the wheel of a car until at least 2020. He had just turned 24 and his license had been revoked because of a DUI in 2010 and for being caught twice for driving with a suspended license last year. In his hands, a car was a lethal weapon and this tragedy was avoidable.
    My heart breaks for the girls’ mother and remaining sister.
