|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.|

|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.
