What is your favorite piece of music? Tchaikovsky Symphony no. 4 

What is your favorite QCSO memory? When Yo-Yo Ma came to play for the QCSO 100 year anniversary gala concert.

What is a fact about you that our QCSO audiences might find surprising? My husband also plays bassoon. We met in the bassoon studio at the University of Michigan.

Away from the orchestra, where might the QCSO audience find you? Teaching 5th and 6th grade band at Regina Elementary in Iowa City, or caring for my son (born June 2016). I also enjoy running, cooking, and reading.
