Musical origins: I switched to the cello at age 5 after playing the violin for 2 years. So glad my 5-year-old self made that decision!
What inspired you to apply to TŌN? I was inspired to apply for TŌN because of the focus on orchestral playing, the many performance opportunities, and the educational aspect of learning how to connect with modern audiences.
Favorite piece to play: Any Beethoven Symphony
Favorite composer fact: Brahms grew his beard in his mid-40s. After realizing it made him look unrecognizable to some, he enjoyed tricking acquaintances that he was someone else for as long as it took them to realize he was only joking.
Favorite musical memory: Watching my students perform
Which composer would have had the best social media: Mozart
Favorite fact about your instrument: My cello likes the window seat on plane rides.
What recording would you take to a deserted island: Schubert’s An Die Musik
Last book read: Johannes Brahms: A Biography by Jan Swafford
Favorite painting: Wheat Stacks with Reaper by Vincent van Gogh
Time travel destination: France in the 1920s
