My performances from the Ravinia Steans Institute this summer are now available online! Check out our Mendelssohn Bb Viola Quintet here; the third movement went especially well. Also check out our Brahms Piano Quintet here, with the wonderful Nigel Armstrong on first. Schubert Bb Piano Trio still to come.
School is off to a great start. I'm taking a psychology class at Northeastern University, which is proving to be incredibly stimulating. I have always been fascinated by the way our minds work, and I feel very privileged to be in an environment where I can officially learn about the history of the field and the makeup of the human psyche. Highlights from our last class included videos about both Phineas Gage, the man who survived a pole driven through his head, and Andrea Yates, whose severe post-partum depression and psychosis lead her to kill her own children. Needless to say, it is not a light class.
And I'm concertmaster of our first orchestra concert! I feel very honored. Our concert is October 3; the program consists of Beethoven Leonore Overture No. 3, John Adams Dr. Atomic Symphony, and Brahms Symphony No. 4. Hope you can make it!
