Not yet 30, and simply brilliant.


She and I are almost exactly the same age. When we were 17 she visited Cleveland and played with the Cleveland Orchestra (Mendelsohn's Violin Piano Concerto in E Minor) and got a standing ovation from the orchestra! (I was there, she deffinitely deserved it.)

Haha... she wasn't traveling with her parents so she stayed with my good friend... because at the time my friend (also 17) was dating a 40+ 1st violinist Big Grin



Winetarelli, what a small world. If anyone on this forum knew Hilary, I was thinking you, stickman and maybe Irwin. Smile

I think she was 15 the first time I saw her, and she was simply flawless and brought life to works of Stravinsky and Brahms.

I was hoping she would not get coached out of her brilliance, and it appears she did not. Cool
