What year did you join the orchestra?
I started performing with the orchestra in 2007, but became principal in 2019.
How long have you been playing music?
Since I was 5
How did you pick your instrument?
Well, that’s a bit of a funny story. I thought I had picked it myself until my mom heard me mention it to someone, she laughed out loud. Apparently, she had planned it all along. She would take me to symphonic concerts in Haifa, Israel and just waited for the moment I would comment about the harp. When I finally did at the age of 12, she caught that wave and asked me if I would like to try it out. In response (very certain that she is joking about it, since my after school schedule was packed with extracurriculars) I jokingly said “sure!”. The following week I had my first harp lesson and next thing you know – I’m all in.
When you’re not playing with the Reno Phil, what would we most likely see you doing in your free time?
Free time?? Maybe when I retire… No really, ever since the arrival of our two daughters, our free time is spent together, playing, reading, dog walking, hiking.
What genre of music are you most excited to play?
Romantic and impressionistic music – it has the most harp.
