What is something interesting that people may not know about you?
I really enjoy language learning, and I’ve spent time studying German and Chinese. (Although I didn’t get too far with Chinese, it’s hard!)

Name three of your favorite composers:
Sergei Rachmaninoff, Alexander Scriabin, Gustav Mahler

When taking a break from music-making, what is your favorite thing to do?
Spending time outdoors, maybe going to a park or just a long walk.

What are you most looking forward to this summer with the NRO?
I hope to experience what it takes to play in a section at a very high level and at the real pace of a full-time, professional orchestra.
