Ani Bukujian '18

San Francisco Ballet Orchestra
2nd Violin Section, Principal


From the very start I was given a lot of opportunities and felt very active as a performer both in orchestra and chamber music. Ian Swensen, Dimitri Murrath, and Paul Herch, as well as the rest of the chamber coaches, helped me see chamber music in a totally different way, and my recent achievement of becoming the Principal Second Violinist of the San Francisco Ballet Orchestra would have been impossible if I did not have the support of my private teacher Sasha Barantschik as well as my excerpt class teacher Catherine Van Hoesen. This was definitely a year to remember!
