“I love sharing The Florida Orchestra with my daughter. Each concert experience allows us to bond and be inspired. Orchestral music transcends all boundaries, even a tween. I am proud to support TFO, and pass along the necessity of support to the next generation.”

Isaac Ruiz-Carus and his daughter, Claudia

“I am passionate about performing beautiful, powerful and inspirational music that stirs our souls and brings our community together. Music is the universal language.”

“With the dream of becoming a professional musician, I arrived in the U.S. by myself at age 14. I understood nothing, but in the middle of the crowded Detroit airport, I played Beethoven’s Violin Sonata No. 5. Everyone smiled and said, ‘Welcome.’ Now after years of study and with degrees from Indiana University, and the Peabody Conservatory of The Johns Hopkins University, music remains the way to connect with others from my heart.” 

Yuan-Yuan Wang, TFO Violinist
