Most memorable performance with the ESO
Rhapsody in Blue with Music Director Larry Eckerling soloing on the piano. We performed “conductor-less” while Larry played, and it worked!
Favorite ESO soloist
It’s hard to choose, but I think our performances with violinist Rachel Barton Pine and percussionist Jordan Wirth were my favorites. I loved the fact that Jordan created some of his own percussion instruments.
Why I like playing with the ESO
I really enjoy the camaraderie, professionalism and energy people bring to rehearsals and concerts.
Favorite composer or piece
Rimsky-Korsakov’s Scheherazade. I remember struggling through it as a freshman at New Trier, but the performance was worth it. The violin solo is so full of passion.
When I’m not playing with the ESO, I’m…
I am an elementary/middle school teacher. My husband, son and I enjoy ski trips and traveling in general. I like to run in local races (as long as it’s not too cold!).
Something most people don’t know about me
Over the last few years, I have enjoyed researching my family’s genealogy. I have connected with a number of distant relatives who have helped me build our family’s story. Also, I have a dear friend in the viola section, Elizabeth Cohen, whom I have known since kindergarten. We have played together in many musical groups over the years.
