Meet Our Musicians: Violinist Anna Gibbs, 11th grade

Since the 4th grade, high school junior Anna Gibbs has been playing violin.

She credits her wonderful teachers at Union Milll Elementary in Fairfax County, and her private lesson teacher Hailey Rose, for helping her land a seat in the prestigious Chamber Orchestra when she entered Yorktown High in the 9th grade.

Under the tutelage of Maestro Thomas Hartman, she has had tremendous success as a high school violinist, and looks forward to many more years of learning to master the instrument that says, “just like ballet, the violin makes me feel better when I’m sad, makes me happier when I’m happy, and helps me express myself when words just don’t do it.”
