Market like Madonna
Violinist Lara St. John started violin at age 2. By age 4, a prodigy, she had made her debut with the Windsor Symphony, and at 10, made her European debut in Lisbon. At 14, she entered the Curtis Institute in Philadelphia, a prestigious music school that awards all of its students full scholarships.
Although St. John has plenty of role models in the violin realm, it is Madonna who inspires her when it comes to image.
“She’s just so smart. She knows exactly what she’s doing all the time, and she keeps changing and reinventing herself,” St. John says. “It’s not like I rush out and buy every Madonna CD, but I do watch how she does her interviews, how she presents herself to the public.”
