My transition to New York was bridged by my summer at Grand Tetons Music Festival. I was so lucky to get to get to spend most of my time with my mentor Robert Davidovici. I stayed at a great log cabin in the Rocky Mountains and spent my days working on different pieces, hanging around backstage at Walk Festival Hall and working with Mr. Davidovici. The air was so clean in the mountains and I would take breaks from playing my violin to listen to mountain meadow birds, amazing. I was very honored to get to meet with some big names in Classical Music including Joshua Bell, Nicola Benedetti, Johannes Moser and Maestro Donald Runnicles. The music was amazing I loved Saint-Saëns, Violin Concerto No. 3 in B minor and have added it to my must play list.
