What is your favorite piece of music?  Some of my favorites include: Beethoven's violin concerto, Mahler's 5th
Symphony,  Puccini's La Boheme, and Biber's Batallia a 10.

What is your favorite QCSO memory? Every time we play the Skrowaczewski arrangement of the Star Spangeled

What is a fact about you that our QCSO audiences might find surprising? I started violin in 5th grade and switched to bass when I was a freshman in high school. Music is one of the biggest blessings of my life.

Away from the orchestra, where might the QCSO audience find you?  At home practicing.
