Interview Special: What’s it like to be a young performer?

Interview special TONIGHT!

With the pandemic leading to the postponement of Season 2, we wanted to touch base with our performers, and find out what it means to be a young performer today. What are the highlights? What are the struggles? What do they see ahead in their careers? What motivates them? Over the next three weeks, you’ll hear several of our young performers chat about these questions and more with our host Teddy Darling.

This week’s episode features:

  • Violist Hillary Cheng
  • Cellist Isaac Lee
  • Pianist, composer and marimba player Jasmine Lai

Each of our performers has chosen a piece of music that inspires them. You can find a Spotify playlist of their inspiration pieces here:

  • Hillary’s inspiration: Mvt 1, Violin Concerto in C Minor Op. 25, by York Bowen
  • Isaac’s inspiration: The Moldau, by Smetana
  • Jasmine’s inspiration: Goldberg Variations by J.S. Bach
