HOUSTON, TX - Even at an early age, the cello just made sense to Nia Prince.

"My kindergarten year, I got to look at all the different instruments, and I decided cello was the best option," the junior at the High School for the Performing and Visual Arts said. "I really love the sound. It's a beautiful instrument. The tone quality is really unique."

Prince has become one of the top high school cello players in Texas, earning all-state honors as a sophomore and junior.

"Playing the cello allows me to express myself, and relieve myself of all the stress I have in other areas of my life."

This Class Act wants to continue playing cello in college, but hasn't decided whether to go the conservatory route or simply play in a school's orchestra.
