What is your favorite piece of music?  There are lots of favorites. You can't go wrong with the Star Wars
soundtrack or anything by a Russian composer.

What is your favorite QCSO memory? I was in Jr. High and I got to see double bassist Gary Karr perform with
the symphony as a soloist. This inspired me to continue on with the bass.

What is a fact about you that our QCSO audiences might find surprising?  First violinist Carol Pedigo-Phoenix started me on the bass when I was in
6th grade.

Away from the orchestra, where might the QCSO audience find you?  They would find me with my husband, Andy spending time with our four
children.
