Viola
Austin, TX
University of Houston
I am a violist and violinist from Austin, Texas. I have been playing violin for 15 years, and the viola for 3. I just finished my Bachelor’s degree in violin performance at Oberlin Conservatory, and should be receiving my degree in the mail any day now. I started learning viola during my second year of college because I couldn’t find a spot in a quartet as a violinist, and eventually I fell in love with the instrument. Currently I study viola performance at University of Houston, where I was awarded the Tomatz quartet fellowship for 2021-2022.
