High schooler creates virtual concerts for nursing homes
August 30, 2020
AUSTIN (AP) — Aylin Tanriverdi has been playing classical guitar since she was 6.
She particularly likes the music of Ana Vidovic, a guitarist originally from Croatia who now lives in the United States.
That love is something the Westwood High senior shared with her father. In her early days of taking lessons at Austin's Orpheus Academy of Music, she and her father would play a lot of duets, but she quickly passed her father's abilities.
Now, Aylin, 17, is drawing on her family's shared appreciation for classical guitar music to create Orpheus' Musical Postcards for Seniors program.
