Hey Reddit! Excited for my first AMA! I'm Alex DePue, violinist and fiddler. I began studying classical violin at age five. I won my first university-level competition at age 10, soloing with the Bowling Green State University Symphony Orchestra, and later won a competition which entitled me to a performance at NYC’s Carnegie Hall, serving as Concertmaster under the direction of Joseph Silverstein for the National Guild Youth Symphony Orchestra. I've continued to appear as guest soloist with orchestras at music festivals worldwide.
