Favorite genre of music?
Baroque, especially Bach.
What do you enjoy doing when you’re not rehearsing or performing?
Listening to music, singing, playing in all sorts of groups, bird-watching, observing nature, talking with friends, reading, meditating.
What’s it like to perform onstage with an orchestra?
It’s like being part of an organism.
