Crespi Carmelite High School
How did you choose your instrument?
I chose the violin because, to me, it has one of the most expressive and pleasant voices in the orchestra. It lifts my spirits and touches my heart. And hopefully others as well!
What piece are you most excited to play this coming season?
I am looking forward to playing every piece because of the high caliber musicians and the great leadership of AYS. The choices this year as very interesting to me. It is inspiring to have the opportunity to perform many genres and styles of music available to me through AYS and it gives me such pleasure to be a part of such a talented and excellent orchestra.
What have you learned from AYS so far and what are you hoping to gain from AYS in the future?
I have a better knowledge of orchestral music, and the possibility of sophisticated repertoire and accountability as a member which will all help me prepare for college and a career in music. I have also been learning to watch more than just the sheet music.
