One of Lydia’s many attributes is her compassion for others. This tender heart is evident and felt in her singing and her instrument playing. Lydia grew up playing the viola and started her musical endeavors when she was 9 years old. The rich timbre from her viola playing and her beautiful alto voice provides the perfect complement to the quartet. Her musical influences and interests cross all genres and she especially enjoys analyzing lyrics of many songs. A lover of nature and an eye for the artistic, she enjoys capturing her observations through her songwriting, photography and art.
