What is your favorite piece of music?  The adagietto movement from Mahler's 5th symphony.

What is your favorite QCSO memory? The sold out Yo-Yo Ma gala concert during our 100th season is something I will never forget!

What is a fact about you that our QCSO audiences might find surprising? I played bass guitar in the metal band Death Virginia, while pursuing my horn performance degrees.

Away from the orchestra, where might the QCSO audience find you?  I enjoy running around the QC with my fiancee, Rachel Price. You'll probably find us at Redband Coffee, Cafe Fresh, or in the Village of East Davenport!
