May 31, 2018 at 07:59 PM · Well, she does do blog posts about her life and has for years. How many other violinists do that?

June 1, 2018 at 03:14 PM · I think it's great that she interacts with fans through social media. It builds a younger following too --- many who can't afford to attend her concerts.

Ray Chen, Philip Quint, and Anne-Sophie Mutter (!) are also pretty active on Instagram. Ray Chen did an Ask-Me-Anything (AMA) on Reddit a few years ago too. Pretty cool.

June 2, 2018 at 06:44 PM · I think this is beautiful!! Currently off Facebook, (computer troubles), this is joyful news from a marvellous violinist and, I'm sure, Mother!! It depends on the individual, but some concert artists deliberately keep 'under the radar' to deflect trouble ~ Hilary Hahn is doing a great job of co-mingling her career and personal life 'High's'!!!

Heartiest Congratulations to Ms.Hahn, her husband, daughter, Zelda, & 'little Nadia'!!!
