My name is Miranda Lucas and I play the viola. I attend high school at the Interlochen Arts Academy where I am a senior. I will be auditioning for conservatories around the country this year, including the Juilliard School, Cleveland Institute of Music, Oberlin, and more. I am in desperate need of a new viola and money raised with this GoFundMe page will be used for the purchase of a new instrument. I've never owned my own viola and have been borrowing an instrument that is too large for me from Interlochen. Having a high quality instrument that fits me would help all aspects of my playing and help me to be competitive at my conservatory auditions. I am hoping to have a new instrument this fall if possible. Any support means the world to me! Thanks so much!
