Minnesota is the greatest place I've ever lived. I'm definitely not biased or anything, having grown up in the Twin Cities...
But I have visited many places in the world, and I have to say that I really enjoy being in Europe. The young people in Europe really embrace classical music and it is integrated into society there. Arts Education is considered to be among the most important things taught in the schools. I feel this really helps the advancement of classical music and the society as a whole.
When I return home from traveling, I most look forward to seeing my family, sisters, and kitty. They mean the world to me! I also look forward to hanging out with my friends when I get home. My friends are amazing because they are my some of my biggest support and are always there for me. What are we without the people in our lives that we love most?
I also love to drive, shop, cook, write, watch movies/TV episodes, Facebook/Twitter, and pretty much anything that involves people. I love being with and around people.
So I'm really looking forward to next month's tour to schools around Minnesota, hoping to help young students discover and pursue a passion for music or whatever it is you love. See you then!
