Viola Mentor, Pioneer
Ella is a junior at Pioneer High School and plays violin and viola. She does viola for PPL because it is the far better instrument and that is what she plays in Pioneer Orchestra. She switched to viola in 8th grade due to the lack of violists in her middle school orchestra. Ella is drawn to PPL due to her own frustrations with the music world and lack of outreach and mentorship, which she hopes to help fix.
Ella’s other passion is government and politics and especially enjoys working with local public servants. She also loves conspiracy theories and the state of New Mexico. Ella hopes to study Public Policy in college so she can help many people in the future.
