Amy Faust chats with Ayush Wynkoop about music, cooking, and….trains! A rising junior at Valley Catholic High School, Ayush plays flute with Metropolitan Youth Symphony, flute and piccolo with the Westside Youth & Community Orchestra, and saxophone with his high school band. As passionate and dedicated as he is to music, he also loves everything about trains: reading about them, riding them, photographing them, and more. (Would he ever hop a freight train? You’ll have to listen to find out.) He’s also a fan of cooking, which he has learned from his professional chef parents, and he speaks English, Japanese and Marathi, the language from his mother’s region of India.
