Headshot 2019

How did you first get into music?

I began taking violin lessons when I was 6 years old but wasn’t really enjoying myself. I tried viola when I was 11 and I loved it so much that I’ve been playing viola ever since!

What made you decide that music would be an important part of your life?

I knew early on that I wanted music to be a part of my life but didn’t pick it as a career until I joined youth symphony and realised that I couldn’t live without orchestra!

What has been your musical highlight so far?

So far my musical highlight has been performing in a chamber music concert with the Aspen Trio.

Who are your favourite composers/artists/musicians?

My favourite composers are Beethoven, Britten, Bartok, Schoenberg, and Adès!

What do you anticipate for the Nevis Ensemble?

Nevis Ensemble will always be growing, evolving, and reaching out to new communities in so many different ways. I am incredibly grateful to be a part of this ensemble and to be able to be a part of creating meaningful musical experiences no matter where we go!
