Violin

When did you start playing your instrument?

I started the violin when I was five years old.

What do you do when you’re not playing in the LSO?

I like to read, work out, dance and try to learn the piano!

When, or how, did you come to join the orchestra?

I joined the orchestra in 2009, I had always heard wonderful things about the LSO and I was so excited to join after graduating law school.

Do you play in any other musical groups?

I sometimes play violin with various Greek bands in the area.

Do you come from a musical family?

I do have a musical family, my mother plays the piano, my father plays a traditional Greek instrument, the bouzouki, and my brother is a drummer and a pianist. My brother & I were in a band together for about 7 years and I have an extremely talented classical pianist for a cousin in Greece!

Does the instrument you play on have a story?

My violin is also a Philly native and I have had it for about 15 years.

Are you originally from Lansdowne/Philadelphia?

I am from Drexel Hill and I went to Upper Darby High School, so I had performed at UDPAC a long time before I joined the LSO!

Who is your favorite superhero?

Batman.
