What is your favorite piece of music?  It is impossible to pick just one favorite piece of music! But lately I
can't seem to get enough of Brahms Symphony No. 3.

What is your favorite QCSO memory? This is my first season with the orchestra, but my favorite memory so far
is performing Brahms Piano Concerto No. 2 with Garrick Ohlsson!

What is a fact about you that our QCSO audiences might find surprising? I've donated my hair to Locks of Love 6 times since I was in middle school
- each time between 10 and 13 inches!

Away from the orchestra, where might the QCSO audience find you?    You'd probably find me at home or with friends, cooking or baking!
