I'm a high school student musician in orchestra, chamber string orchestra and groups, and musical orchestra. Besides classical music, I appreciate almost every other genre out there including EDM, indie, and world. And besides music in general, I love fashion and traveling and am manager of my string quartet, Montalvo Strings. We play for weddings and events in the San Francisco Bay Area.

This past June I traveled to France, July I stayed in San Diego, and August I will be in London and Kenya for a music exchange with the Mt. Kenya Conservatoire! I am so blessed and grateful to have the opportunity to play with, listen to, and connect with musicians around the world both physically and online.

Playing the cello is truly my passion! I study under Amos Yang, the Associate Principal Cellist of the San Francisco Symphony. Feel free to leave a comment and check out my videos!

Thanks, Rachel! The San Francisco Symphony is also one of my favorites. What a phenomenal orchestra! Thanks for posting a video of your school orchestra--sounds great! You should post/share it with the orchestra group!

You're welcome, Rachel! The red C on a picture will generally mean that it's a person who is with Carnegie Hall.

I'll go check out your video right now! Thanks! :)
