Susan notes: Thanks to TED for making TED Talks downloadable and embeddable, and for providing the biographical information that goes along with them.

With a wide range of passions including music, poetry, and art, Adrianna studies piano and violin as well as singing. Her musical interests range from Michael Jackson to Mozart, Beethoven to Beyonce, and Liszt to Lady Gaga.

Nine years of practice have led to awards from events including the Seattle Young Artists’ Festival, the Performing Arts Festival of the Eastside, and the Music Teachers’ National Association (MTNA).

In violin, her accomplishments include being named Concertmistress for the Redmond Junior High Honors Orchestra, as well as the Junior All-State Orchestra.

Adrianna enjoys unleashing her creativity in other ways–at age twelve, she co-authored the poetry book Dancing Fingers with her sister, Adora. Not just a musician, singer, or writer, Adrianna has an extensive collection of canvases at home, simply waiting to be illuminated with patterns of her intricate ideas and abstract emotion.
