What inspired you to become a musician?
My parents

Who are your all-time favorite composers and/or pieces? Why?
Ravel and Debussy. I honestly love them, not just because they’re great composers but also, their compositions are the only thing which can reach my heart.

What is an interesting fact about you and/or your instrument?
I know how to Juggle‍.

When taking a break from music-making, what is your favorite thing to do?
Juggling, it’s really helping me to relax not only my hands but also my mind.

Why did you choose the NRO?
Because I was there last year, and I loved the experience which I’ve got. I fell in love with nature and people of Breckenridge. It was the greatest experience I’ve ever had with any music festival, So I decided to come back again this year and get even more experience and have a lot of fun playing in this Incredible orchestra.
