Like any other musical instrument, playing the piano has its pros and cons. Isabella personally enjoys adapting classical pieces into her own style without having to stress about being rhythmically in time with the ensemble. Every fortnight, she attends a piano lesson with Alice Wu and is planning to do her Grade 8 ABRSM Piano Exam in 2016 or 2017 and she rehearses as the pianist in the Baradene College orchestra on Thursday Mornings. Despite these musical activities, life mainly as a soloist can be rather lonely. What better to do than join energetic Emily (cellist) and zealous Zosia (violinist) in the Corazon trio? A chance for a balanced, glorious harmonisation of the three popular musical instruments?
“I have to admit that I look forward to Thursday lunchtime practices with the Corazon Trio members, Emily and Zosia,” Isabella says, “It is my favourite group in the musical field… or actually, in any field! We hope to bring wonders to the world ”
Though she appreciates nearly all genres, Isabella especially cherishes Mozart, Chopin and Tchaikovsky in classical music and her favourite modern artist is Maroon 5. Other fun hobbies of Isabella include running, watching movies and travelling when possible.
