Most memorable performance with the ESO

That would have to be Beethoven’s 9th in 2011. There is no experience quite like it!

Favorite ESO soloist

Mark O’Connor

Why I like playing with the ESO

I appreciate the challenge and the wide range of works that we perform. This is a very talented group of musicians, and I feel lucky to have the opportunity to play with a full orchestra.

Favorite composer or piece

Brahms

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

Working at the Grant Park Music Festival, spending time with family and friends, baking, playing soccer, crafting, trying not to lose my French skills, reading, and generally trying to incorporate as much glitter into my life as possible.

Something most people don’t know about me

My favorite holiday is Halloween. I always decorate my apartment, and will often make my own elaborate costumes.
