Concert Master 2022-2023
Music has always been a big part of my life. I have been a member of the Beckman Chamber Orchestra since fall 2019, as well as PSYO, All-state orchestra, and All Southern Orchestras. Following the footsteps of my two older sister, I began my musical education at the age of 7 on the piano, later beginning the violin at the age of 9.
