Sofie Nierras, 8, is a 3rd grade student at Doral Academy. At the age of 5, she saw some kids playing the violin and wanted to learn. On her first year, she loved to play Disney songs, especially music from The Little Mermaid. Her favorite violinist is Lindsey Stirling and her signed poster hangs on her wall with a personal message, “Keep on Playing”!. Besides the violin, she enjoys art and reading. She could cuddle up with her cat, Princess, and read for hours. In 2015, Sofie joined the Doral Honor Orchestra as the youngest member. Her violin teacher, Arturo Hernandez, keeps learning fun and exciting for her and arranges special music for her to play. She is so excited to join the Las Vegas Young Artists Orchestra Academy and can’t wait to learn, grow and make new friends.
