Off StageWhere were you born?
I was born and raised in Fortaleza Brazil and came to the U.S. in 2007 to go to college.
How were you introduced to music and the violin?
I was introduced to music and the violin in my hometown through an afterschool program for underprivileged children.
What do you do for fun when you're not performing/practicing?
Performing is my fun! Besides the symphony, I love playing Broadway shows, operas, weddings, Christmas concerts, chamber music, and in new music ensembles. But I also like to hang out with friends, discover different coffee shops in town, and travel when I can. I am a licensed Realtor in NC and SC and I am also a reservist in the U.S. Army. I am very excited to join CSO for the season!
