Most memorable performance with the ESO

Beethoven 9th Symphony opening our 50th anniversary season.

Favorite ESO soloist

Richard Roberts (concertmaster of the Montreal Symphony) gave a beautiful performance of the Brahms Violin Concerto, then played the rest of the concert in the back of the second violin section.

Why I like playing with the ESO

We have the enthusiasm of amateurs, with high musical standards as well, and we’re providing great accessible music to our community. We’re a wonderful example of why amateur music making is important. Also, it’s like family.

Favorite composer or piece

Bach solo partitas and sonatas, either piano or violin.

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

Gardening, traveling, visiting my dad, working at Chalet as a perennial plant specialist.

Something most people don’t know about me

One of my many jobs working my way through Indiana University was auto mechanic trainee.
