Most memorable performance with the ESO

My first concert, May 2011, with Larry playing Rhapsody in Blue

Favorite ESO soloist

Mathieu Dufour

Why I like playing with the ESO

I love being able to play great music with excellent musicians who are also down-to-earth and cool people (Cheryl and Paula, second-violin section leaders extraordinaire, to name two).

Favorite composer or piece

Debussy and tango master Astor Piazzolla

When I’m not playing with the ESO, I’m…

Teaching writing and English literature at Northwestern, running marathons, swimming, reading very old books, playing with my children Luca (9) and Sofia (5).

Something most people don’t know about me

Have started taking tango lessons so that I can (one day) dance to the music I enjoy so much.
