I began my musical studies in the elementary school band program at my local public school when I was in fourth grade. My desire to play the oboe was thwarted by a high interest in the instrument, so I began my studies on the flute. I switched to the oboe my sophomore year in high school, after the other students had moved on to other things, and have been playing since.
I enjoy playing all sorts of music, from the Renaissance through the modern, from chamber ensembles and orchestral pieces to musical theater.Â I’ve played in the pit for many community theater performances both in MA and back home in Connecticut, including Les MisÃ©rables, Fiddler on the Roof, Nine, Once Upon a Mattress, Carousel, and Music Man. As an undergraduate, I played in the Wind Symphony and Wind Ensemble at Cornell University before moving to the Cape. In August, you’ll find me at the Chamber Music Conference and Composers’ Forum of the East (aka. the conference formerly known as Bennington). During the regular season, I’m currently playing with the Falmouth Chamber Players OrchestraÂ andÂ the Brockton Symphony, as well as many local small ensembles.Â Check out their websites for our concert schedules!
