Violin Mentor, Pioneer
Rithika is a senior violinist in Pioneer Symphony Orchestra. She started playing the violin in third grade after watching her sister play. In the fifth grade, Rithika tried playing the clarinet but by sixth grade she quickly returned to the violin. She continues to play the violin because of the amazing orchestra family at Pioneer. Through PPL, she hopes to help and support other players, so they can gain more confidence in their abilities.
Outside of orchestra, Rithika enjoys dancing even with the constantly bruised knees. She loves elephants, likes to binge random shows while procrastinating and volunteering at the Hands on Museum. Rithika isn't sure what she wants to study after high school, but is excited to meet more people.
