What is your favorite piece of music?  The Elgar Violin Concerto inspired me to become a musician when I was
twelve years old. I have many favorites, but this one tops the list.

What is your favorite QCSO memory? Yo-Yo Ma's overwhelming joy and transcendent musical expression with
always stand out among my many magical QCSO memories.

What is a fact about you that our QCSO audiences might find surprising?   I like intense challenges. I have a black belt in karate, and I've walked
a 500-mile pilgrimage across Spain. Performing Mahler is no different!

Away from the orchestra, where might the QCSO audience find you?    Reading, dyeing eggs in the traditional Ukrainian style, or spending a
pleasant evening watching Star Wars with my cat.
