Meet the Orchestra Q&A

What instrument do you play?
I am a percussionist.

When did you join Lakeview Orchestra?
I’ve been a member of the orchestra since November of 2018.

Where did you go to college, and what was your major?
I majored in Percussion Performance at Western Illinois University.

What is your profession?
I’m a full-time graduate student at Roosevelt University.

What piece are you most excited about on the Stravinsky’s Firebird Suite concert?
The piece that I am most excited to perform this concert is Stravinsky's The Firebird Suite. The first time I ever attended a symphony orchestra concert was when I was in middle school, and I saw the Quad City Symphony Orchestra perform the Firebird Suite!

What is your favorite Lakeview Orchestra memory?
My favorite Lakeview Orchestra memory was when we performed Stravinsky's The Rite of Spring this past March! It was very rewarding to be able to play the second timpani part along side our principal timpanist and with a full percussion section.
