When not rehearsing or performing on stage with the BSO, I spend my time… teaching, sailing, reading, watching PBS, spending time with family, doing house and yard work.
If I had not become a professional musician, I would have become a… doctor.
I don’t listen to music to unwind. I read.
In the car, I listen to… classical music or NPR.
My current ring tone is… an old fashioned ringer.
The last book I read was… Two Lives by Vikram Seth.
Most people would be surprised to learn that… I was a pre-med student during the first two years of college.
One dream that I have is… to be a competent sailor. I am making progress.
The non-musical accomplishment that I am most proud of is my… participation in the last contract talks, which as well as negotiating a contract, revealed to all the many problems within our organization and contributed to their solution.
My favorite vacation spot is… the Cushings Island in Maine.
The last movie I saw was… Other Lives.
To prepare for a performance I… practice, practice, practice!!!
If I could choose another instrument, it would be the… cello.
What was your most embarrassing musical moment? I’m not telling.
