Most memorable performance with the ESO

The “Made In America” concert with the fiddle pieces played by Mark O’Connor. The audience LOVED him. The orchestra received a standing ovation and there were happy faces everywhere!!

Favorite ESO soloist

Mathieu Dufour, flutist and Lawrence Eckerling, pianist

Why I like playing with the ESO

Good quality group, conductor and choice of repertoire. The people are very nice and it is easy to get along with everyone.

Classical: Rapsodie Espagnole by Maurice Ravel, Carmina Burana by Carl Orff and anything by Igor Stravinsky or Bela Bartók. Opera: Turandot and Doctor Atomic. Rock: Led Zeppelin, the Doors, the B-52s and Parov Stelar.

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

I recently earned my M.B.A. in Strategic Global Marketing from DePaul University. I manage the marketing and proposals for an engineering firm in downtown Chicago. I enjoy traveling, spending time with my family and sewing.

Something most people don’t know about me

I am a purple belt in Shotokan karate and love attending and volunteering at international karate competitions.
