What do you want patrons of the Symphony to know about you?
I have played cello for the past 35 years.

What would you be doing if you weren’t a professional musician?
If I weren’t playing cello, I would open a dog shelter.

What do you do in your spare time (other than practice!)?
When I am not playing cello, I am probably somewhere in Alaska climbing through the wilderness.
