On the Cover: Quan Ge

Posted February 16, 2016

This February we highlight violinist Quan Ge in the cross-channel On the Cover. In the video Q&A above, Quan recalls the impact of hearing the New York Philharmonic for the first time and how she went from “Fingerboard Maniac,” as her teacher called her, to a violinist in the Philharmonic.

Follow along on the Philharmonic’s Instagram tomorrow, when Quan takes over and shows what life is like in the first violin section.

And mark your calendars. Quan will join us for a live Twitter Q&A on Thursday, February 25 at 1:00 PM EST. Follow us on Twitter and have your questions ready!
