Most memorable performance with the ESO

They’re all memorable.

Favorite ESO soloist

Wendy Warner and Matt Hagle

Why I like playing with the ESO

Varied repertoire, dedication of my fellow musicians, my fellow cellos, and especially, the leadership of Maestro Eckerling — he’s always prepared and always pushing us to excel.

Favorite composer or piece

Whatever I am playing at the moment, though I am particularly looking forward to the Verdi Requiem next season.

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

Playing cello, playing cello, playing cello. I’m also enjoying my “retirement” from 38 years of teaching public school orchestra by teaching orchestra and cello as a substitute teacher. I also enjoy running after my grandson.

Something most people don’t know about me

I have a sizeable tea cup collection. I enjoy doing arts and crafts with friends, and I recently was in Las Vegas with the sole purpose of visiting
