What is your favorite piece of music? Mendelssohn's Hebrides Overture and Octet
What is your favorite QCSO memory?
Playing with Yo-Yo Ma, hugging him, and telling him that I saw him on TV when I was 3 and that he's the reason I became a musician.

What is a fact about you that our QCSO audiences might find surprising? I taught middle school English for 3 years.

Away from the orchestra, where might the QCSO audience find you?  Writing, cooking, or performing with Lux String Quartet or salsa band Charanga Tropical.
