What is your favorite piece of music?   Beethoven - Leonore Overture No. 3

What is your favorite QCSO memory? Having the opportunity to share
the stage with Garrick Ohlsson, performing Brahms' Second Piano Concerto.

What is a fact about you that our QCSO audiences might find surprising? My great-grandfather was a successful jazz musician in the 1930s!  His
chart 'Copenhagen' was recorded by the Wolverines featuring Bix Beiderbecke.

Away from the orchestra, where might the QCSO audience find you?  Teaching flute, bike riding
along Lake Michigan, and spending time with friends.
