Class of 2012–13: Ellie Jensen
Violinist (St. Mary’s High School, Medford)
“Zigeunerweisen” by Pablo de Sarasate.
Season 6, Episode 4
I have wanted to play the violin since I was a little girl. Four years ago I was given a violin and the opportunity to learn. My love for music inspired me to spend hours with my violin and work through the days when I felt like I’d never be good enough. Last year I had the opportunity to be in a competition at Carnegie Hall with the Siskiyou Violins. We came home with first place. Next year, when I graduate from St. Mary’s high school I plan to go to college and double major in music and linguistics.
