Meet the Orchestra Q&A

What instrument do you play?
I play the viola!

When did you join Lakeview Orchestra?
I first started playing with the orchestra during the 2018/2019 season.

Where did you go to college, and what was you major?
I went to Eastern Michigan University and majored in Business Marketing.

What is your profession?
I am a Marketing Strategist.

What piece are you most excited about on the Stravinsky’s Firebird Suite concert?
I'm excited about so many pieces this concert! The Firebird Suite is one of my absolute favorite pieces to play. But I think what caught me the most by surprise this concert was the Haydn Trumpet Concerto. My boyfriend is a trumpet player and I know that concerto very, very well. It will be very fun to play!

What is your favorite Lakeview Orchestra memory?
My favorite memory is probably the Rite of Spring concert this past February. That piece gave me more joy and satisfaction than I imagined it would - it was so amazing to get through it! Like finishing a marathon, we were all exhausted, but we also felt amazing. Another great memory are the weekly outings we take to Guthries after rehearsal. I’ve made so many great friendships through Lakeview Orchestra, and it's been an amazing experience.
