Professional experiences: Prior to moving to Cincinnati, was living in London and playing with the London Philharmonic Orchestra and Philharmonia Orchestra.
Inspiration as a musician: It's so easy to find anything online these days, from old recordings to performances from all over the world. But I also draw inspiration from playing with others - especially chamber music. It's always inspiring because everyone has such a different and unique approach to music!
Favorite things to do in Cincinnati? When the weather is nice, I like finding new places to go running and hiking outdoors.
Fun fact about Evin: I tried to apply to be on "The Great British Bake Off" show when I lived in the UK. Unfortunately, it didn't work out, but I still bake all the time at home!
Oddest practice quarters: Parking lot; stairwell; bathroom; closet
