What could be better than a dream coming true? For Christina Bouey, assistant professor of violin, it was having a dream come true twice when she performed on two separate occasions at New York City’s famed Carnegie Hall.
Just three weeks after appearing in a solo recital in one of Carnegie’s smaller concert halls on October 3, she performed at Stern Auditorium in collaboration with the Senior Concert Orchestra of New York after being personally invited by Maestro David Gilbert.
“It was something I was waiting for for a long time,” said Bouey. “When I stepped onstage at Carnegie Hall, I sort of had this moment of wonder and amazement. But something inside me felt like it was right to be on this stage. I gave myself like 10 seconds, and then I said, ‘Okay, now it’s time to get to work.’”
