Name: Marina Warsaw-Fan Performing Talent: Cello What did you do this summer pertaining to your talent? I went to the Heifetz International Music Institute for six weeks and was practicing six hours a day solo with a couple hours of rehearsals on top of that- not to mention lessons and coachings and masterclasses. I performed in two Celebrity Series concerts and in three Stars of Tomorrow concerts. Since then, I’ve just been preparing for my conservatory auditions/application CD’s and competitions this coming fall and winter. What was your favorite performing experience? I honestly think the first time I played a concerto with an orchestra. It was with the Merrimack String Valley Orchestra when I was 8 and I remember it was more fun than anything I’ve ever done…probably partially because I was so young and I didn’t know that performing was supposed to be hard.
