Years in AYPO: 2001-2004
Current Occupation: Violinist in the Frankfurt Radio Symphony Orchestra
Current City of Residence: Frankfurt am Main, Germany
Current Musical Involvement: I play in my orchestra, which involves rehearsals, concerts, and recordings. I also frequently perform chamber music and solo works. Education is really important to me, so I actively teach and play many outreach concerts. During my summer vacation, I also teach at Manhattan School of Music's summer camp.
Favorite Piece to Perform: So many- it depends if you are talking about solo, chamber or orchestral works, and it depends on my mood too.
Any advice for young musicians interested in pursuing a music career? Practice a lot, and make a plan to achieve your goals! But don't forget to have a healthy balance with other activities and to give back to the community.
