Program bio from Show 246:

Kelly Talim (violin), age 16, comes from Buffalo Grove, Illinois. She attends the Adlai E. Stevenson Public School in Lincolnshire, Illinois and studies violin with Cyrus Forough. Kelly is a member of the string quartet “Poco Fuoco” and the Music Institute of Chicago’s chamber orchestra. She has also been involved in the Great Mountains Music Festival & School and the Bowdoin International Music Festival, and she was the winner of the 2011 Blount-Slawson Young Artists Competition. Kelly claims that the strangest thing about her is that on schooldays she tends to be a different person in the mornings than at night.
