Lucia Lin

Violinist | Boston Symphony Orchestra

Even to a been-there, done-that townie like Lucia Lin, Treno’s never got old.

“It was one of my favorite hangout spots, located right next to the old Thunderbird Theater on Goodwin Street,” says the Uni High grad, now a violinist in the Boston Symphony Orchestra and associate professor at Boston University.

“Because of its proximity to the Music Building, it was a popular hangout for their pitchers of beer, video games and pinball. One could argue that mastering Ms. Pac-Man or Asteroids was beneficial for those fast twitch muscles needed in Paganini Caprices.

“For sure, it was a great place to destress from lengthy practice sessions.”
