A new year has begun, and there is no better time to celebrate three brilliant and brand new stars. Nikka Gershman-Pepper, David Choi, and Ezekiel Sokoloff are the guests of honor at this month’s symphonic concert. The three of them took home gold medals at the 2021 National Young Artist Competition, and this January 22 and 23 they will make their VSO debut performing their competition selections. Ashley spoke with each of them about the journey that has led them to the stage of Skyview Concert Hall, competition wisdom, and growing up as a musician.
