I'm a violinist, violist, and vocalist, with an equal love of classical and folk music.I recently graduated from Williams College, where I studied with Ah Ling Neu, performed with the Berkshire Symphony, and played in at least four quartets at any given time. Summer 2014 I participated in the Manchester Music Festival, where I was able to focus on chamber music exclusively for six weeks. This fall I toured Europe as a vocalist with Northern Harmony, an eclectic vocal ensemble based in Vermont, then traveled with my duo partner, studying traditional music in the Balkans. I recently moved to Boston and am looking for opportunities to meet and collaborate with other musicians, particularly on chamber music.
