I’ve been Assistant principal viola of the Oregon Symphony viola section since 1995. I’m also a member of the Arnica Quartet and Third Angle New Music, and play often with 45th Parallel. Before my professional career began, I earned degrees from the University of Puget Sound, the University of Maryland, and the Peabody Institute of Johns Hopkins University, studying with some of the top violists and chamber musicians in the world. I have always valued the presence of AllClassical in the Portland arts community, and as that presence has grown and strengthened over the years, I decided that I wanted to be a part of this vital team. I look forward to exciting times ahead for this essential nexus of the arts community as it works to build partnerships and expand its reach into the community of music lovers.
