Name: Shari Newman
Location: Ft. Lauderdale, FL
Hobbies: CELLO, singing, piano, reading, writing, Currently a Junior at the Alexander W. Dreyfoos School of the Arts... majoring in... CELLO!
I've been playing for 10 years, and taken from a numerous number of teachers in the Ft. Lauderdale/Miami/Palm Beach Area -- including Barbara Corcillo, Steven Sigerdson, David Cole (son of Orlando Cole...), and am currently studying with Claudio Jaffe.
I spent the summer of '98 at the Bowdoin Summer Music Festival, at Bowdoin College in Maine, studying cello under Andre Emelianoff..
Summer '99 I attended the National High School Music Festival at Northwestern University, and took from Ronald Chambers, and Hans Jorgen Jenson.
I am currently in the Youth Orchestra of Palm Beach County, YACO (Young Artists Chamber Orchestra), and a performing quartet, Arioso String Quartet, as well as our school orchestra and ensembles.
I've attended Florida All State since 8th grade, and have been in the All County Orchestra since 8th as well.
That's about all.... I guess i'm trying to now decide if i want to major in the cello during college, or perhaps pursue journalism. I know that whatever i do, it will be music related....
