What instrument(s) do you play? When did you start playing?
I play violin, beginning at age 10. I am currently in 2 quartets and 3 orchestras. A highlight for me was having the privilege of playing with a small group of 8 string players, touring in 4 cities in Italy, completing our concert series in a beautiful Duomo in Rome.
What brought you to Rochester and how did you become involved with The Rochester Pops Orchestra?
My husband was appointed as Administrative Pastor for the Three Corners Parish of the United Methodist Church, based at Stewartville United Methodist Church. I am an RN, and completed my career working in Nursing Administration for the Mayo Clinic Heath System.
I became involved with the RPO when a friend shared that a new ‘pops’ orchestra was forming in the Rochester area. I have been a member since the inaugural year of the RPO.
