"I've been playing violin since I was 5..."

"I hate to say I'm 37 years old. I've been playing violin since I was 5, so if you do the math, I've been playing for 32 years. I started as a kid, and then I started playing professionally in college in New York City, and then at the University of North Texas. I'm here in Charlottesville performing with the Ashlawn Opera Festival, which is held at The Paramount."
