I am 17 and love the violin! Its history, legends and compositions. My absolute favorite composer is Camille Saint-Saens and performer, Isaac Stern. I began playing the violin with my school in the fourth grade and have been lucky enough to have made it this far since neither of my parents know anything about music. So far I have performed in several masterclasses with Angella Ahn from the Ahn Trio, Andres Cardenes from the Diaz Trio and concertmaster of the Philedelphia Symphony and with Patrick J. Rafferty from the University of Louisville.
My favorite era is the Romantic Era. I have sampled music from every era and Baroque is a close second. I plan to have music in my life forever and I hope to be successful!
So far my carrer as a pre-college violinist has been very successful. Among many other positions, my most recognizable positions are Principal 2nd Violin (Ballard Chamber Orchestra), Concertmaster (Ballard Chamber Orchestra), Principal 2nd Violin (Louisville Youth Orchestra), Principal 2nd Violin (Transylvania Symphony Orchestra), Concertmaster (All-County Symphonic-2006).
