2021 Senior Spotlight - Yana Batazhan

This YAO violinist plans to find more ways to explore the healing power of music. Today we celebrate Yana Batazhan.

Yana is a graduating Senior from Jefferson County. A member of DYAO for 5 seasons, she belonged to both Conservatory Orchestra and the Young Artists Orchestra.  She is a student of Stacey Brady.  Upon graduating, she plans to attend Belmont University where she will major in Music Therapy.

When asked what DYAO has meant to her, she responded: "An amazing opportunity to play music that is advanced and enjoyable. It gave me an opportunity to grow as a musician and a leader."

Music does have the power to heal!
