Amaris Piedra is a senior at Langham Creek High School who started playing the violin in 6th grade. She knew that she really loved playing the violin and after she joined Virtuosi her passion for it grew. Amaris has made region every year and always makes 1s on her solos, even qualifying for state. She placed in the 2015–2016 Concerto Competition, which helped reduce her stage fright. In her free time, she either watches shows on Netflix or sketches. Amaris’ comfort food is beef jerky and her go to meal is a burger and fries (preferably from Smashburger). She listens to all types of music, but mostly rock. Amaris loves going out with her friends and spends as much time as possible with them. She also really loves animals and hopes to own a snake in the future.
