Music is my life

Herald: Milana, how long have you been in the United States?

MS: We arrived six years ago in June, and settled down in Sarasota, Florida, In two years, I moved to New York City to attend The Julliard School. I got my bachelor's degree in piano this last May, and now I'm going for my master's. My whole family is musical. My father is a clarinet player. He was a principal clarinetist for 20 years in the opera house in Moldova. My mother was a prima donna at the same opera house and sang all over Russia and Europe. When we moved to the States, we decided to form a family trio—piano, voice, and clarinet—which felt very natural to start with.

Herald: And you are the pianist in the trio. How did you get the idea of studying piano?
