Which means I can finally update my whereabout for this semester. Here goes a very long post!
First, I am very excited to share that I will be going to Marlboro Chamber Music Festival this summer! I can’t wait to work with incredible artists and colleagues, and meet a family heroine, Mitsuko Uchida.
Second, my epic Brahms night was incredible! It opened with the F Major Viola Quintet with Pam Frank, Zoe Martin-Doike, Nathan Vickery, and Jessica Chang. What an amazing first experience with the quintet! The night concluded with the C Minor Piano Quartet with Becky Anderson, Eric Han, and Michelle Cann. The ending will haunt me forever…
Then, my graduation recital. What a joy to share the stage with people I love, and show my thanks to all the friends and faculty who have supported me the last three years. I tried to say all my thanks at the end without crying, but alas, my thanks to my friends brought out the water works Lovelovelove to all the people in my life!
Immediately after my recital, the Johannes Quartet came to do a residency at Curtis! My Mozart Quartet with Luosha, Nikki, and Nathan had some amazing coachings, and the residency concluded with an amazing concert with students and Johannes playing side by side. Thank you Johannes Quartet for giving us so much insight into Mozart!
2 weeks ago, Nathan and I left Philly for Boston to start rehearsing for the Steans on Tour! I think we had a very successful first concert at the Isabella Gardner Museum. It’s a really cool performance space! 360 degrees of viewing pleasure Can’t wait to continue our tour next week!
