  • Wonderful news! We’ve known Karina since she was a violin student at Curtis. She worked her tail off and it’s such a pleasure to see her succeeding as a conductor.

    • I remember being impressed by her violin playing at Marlboro. I think that shining at Marlboro is a very big deal. If she is as good a conductor as she is a violinist, we are in for a treat.

      More important than being a woman: she is talented.
