How long have you been playing music?
Since I was 6 years old.
How did you pick your instrument?
My older brother started lessons and I wanted to be like him.
Section Violinist with the Reno Philharmonic and the Vermont Symphony Orchestra, Assistant Principal Second Violin with Opera San José, private violin teacher in Truckee, CA
When you’re not playing with the Reno Phil, what would we most likely see you doing in your free time?
Working on our 10 acres of land in Alta, CA with my husband, practicing, hiking, skiing, baking
What is your favorite piece of all time to play, and why?
Schubert Cello Quintet, because there are so many exquisite moments, and I love to collaborate with friends on it
If you could meet one composer/musician, who would it be and why? Maybe Haydn? He was deeply admired by his students Mozart and Beethoven and inspired them all to compose so many beloved string quartets, and it seems like he would have been a humorous and affable person with lots to talk about
What genre of music are you most excited to play?
