How did you start playing your instrument?
I started off playing saxophone, but one day in my eighth grade band, someone told me “You look bored” and handed me a bassoon. It just took off from there! 

Why are you excited to go on tour?
I am excited to go on tour because we are going to Cuba. It seems like such a unique experience that I won’t get in any other place, and I think it is going to be very cool.

What superpower would you have and why?
Definitely the ability to manipulate air. Then I could not only levitate objects, I could fly as well!
