Pacific Region International Summer Music Academy, 2017; National Orchestral Institute and Festival, 2019

I don’t think we will be seeing them in concert halls. Hopefully, we will be seeing them in unconventional settings.
Bartók’s Concerto for Orchestra. It was one of the first big orchestral pieces I played.
My summers at Greenwood Music Camp. I loved the sense of camaraderie and being able to play music in the beautiful Berkshires.

Prague because it’s so beautiful! And there’s lots of beer.
Diane Keaton, because she’s wild. Alton Brown, because he would make a great meal. And Catherine O’Hara, because I love that scene in Beetlejuice.
