University of Washington Class of 2013
"When I play the violin, the music overtakes me, guides me, and I begin to subconsciously move to the beat. Yet I am still in control of my crescendos, decrescendos, vibrato and staccatos, and I can manipulate the music into conveying my style, my spirit. I was fortunate enough to be offered many opportunities to play music outside of the classical medium, especially at Charles Wright. Theater has further broadened my artistic spectrum and I dabbled a bit in jazz violin in my junior year. Music has opened countless doors for me to explore, to discover different styles, cultures, ideals, for it is a universal language that moves both those who play it and those who hear it."
