Two-time Grammy Award-winning violinist Hilary Hahn has delighted audiences around the world in the 20 years of her career. Starting lessons in the Suzuki program at just three-years-old, Hahn went on to enroll in the Curtis Institute of Music at age 10 and made her orchestra debut at age 12. She would soon complete university requirements at age 16 but would delay graduation to continue studies, eventually becoming a full-time touring musician and receiving a Bachelor’s Degree at age 19. Her career now boasts 15 albums, three DVDs, an Oscar-nominated movie soundtrack, a performance spot on The Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien, cover features in various magazines like Vogue, Elle, Town & Country, and Marie Claire, and being named “America’s Best Young Classical Musician” by Time magazine in 2001. – See more at: http://www.uniontheater.wisc.edu/Season15-16/hilary-hahn.html#sthash.P5SUtEit.dpuf
