New DMA Piano student, Petra Peršolja, is featured in the UCSB GradPost's article, "Getting to Know You: Introducing Our 2015 Incoming Graduate Student Cohort."
'PETRA PERŠOLJA comes from the relatively young country of Slovenia. When she was six years old, she told her parents that she wanted to play the piano. “My mom is an economist, my father used to have a truck company, and my two little brothers are excellent in sports. To this day we don't know where I got the idea. ... Although my country is not economically very stable, and finding a job as a pianist there would be quite impossible, my parents always encouraged me to follow my dreams.”' Check out the full article here: Petra Peršolja on UCSB GradPost
