Rebecca Kruger Fryxell

Instrument: Violin

Education: Bachelor and Master of Music from Indiana University where I studied with James Buswell and Josef Gingold

Hometown: Columbus, Georgia

Current neighborhood: Clifton, Cincinnati, Ohio

Joined the CSO in 1985

Inspirations as a musician: I love sitting in the violin section and being surrounded by the sound of the entire orchestra. For me, there's nothing like the goosebumps I experience during a particularly powerful passage of a piece as it's happening all around me. I also really enjoy all of the soaring melodies I get to play as a first violinist.

Favorite thing to do in Cincinnati: I walk a lot so I appreciate being able to do so while taking in the beautiful parks and interesting old buildings in the city.

Fun fact about Rebecca: I'm a closet soprano.
