Thanks to the Musical Olympus Foundation, I had the fantastic opportunity to perform at Carnegie Hall’s Zankel Hall! I have played at Carnegie Hall’s Weill Recital many times before, but my dream has always been to one day play in the Isaac Stern Hall. Well, I haven’t made it quite yet to Isaac Stern, but the beautiful Zankel Hall (the middle sized hall of the three Carnegie Hall venues) is one step closer, and a very special Hall of it’s own! This experience was very exciting for me. I performed alongside four other really impressive acts – including an AMAZING percussionist from Italy, an opera singer, a really fun accordion and saxophone duo, and a flawless violinist who is also a student at Juilliard Pre-College with me. The concert was so much fun, and I felt really honored to receive the Audience Award at the end of the concert! To my complete surprise (I didn’t even know there was an Audience Award), I was presented with a golden Easter Egg, the gorgeous artwork of the Russian jeweler Vladimir Mikhailov.
I also had a wonderful time performing at the Russian Embassy to honor the 10th Musical Olympus Festival Gala Concert in New York. A huge thank you to Musical Olympus Director Irina Nikitina who made both events possible!
