In her downtime, violist Dana Hansen loves to curl up with a good book and Tommy, shown here, or her unpictured cat, Sissy, for company. The 28-year-old Harvard and Juilliard grad also appreciates hip-hop by such artists as Jay-Z and 50 Cent. Listening to hip-hop, she says, has affected the way she approaches classical music. “It might be more subliminal than anything else, but to hear a rapper speaking in so many different ways, it makes you think about what music really is. I like the fact that you’re talking about the same concepts in these two totally different kinds of music," she says. "It’s not warring cultures. It’s all connected.”
