Aliya has been playing the violin for 9 years since she was 5, and has been with the NSCE for the past 5 years. Her favourite thing about NSCE is playing a genre of music that isn’t classical. Her favourite NSCE memories are the trips to Bowen Island and last year’s Centennial concert. Other than the violin, she has dabbled in ukulele and also enjoys skiing. She is also with the Royal Conservatory of Music, where she has gained experience in classical violin. Aliya is very grateful for the opportunities that the Senior group has offered.
