Jacon Shin at an orchestra concert at Riverdale.

Violist Jacob Shin ’21 is featured in a segment on the National Public Radio program, From the Top, on Sept. 25. A student of Patinka Kopec at the Manhattan School of Music Precollege Division, Jacob delved into music after suffering two concussions playing football. He says that music saved him. “I pursued it like I had never done before,” he said. “It was like a fire was ignited in me.” You can hear him perform Sonata in F minor, Op. 120 mvmt 1 by Johannes Brahms.
