I received my Master’s degree from the Eastman School of Music in Rochester NY, and my Bachelor’s at Ohio University in Athens, OH. My primary orchestra jobs have been: Toledo Symphony, Grand Rapids Symphony, Oklahoma Symphony, Tulsa Philharmonic and New Mexico Symphony (NMSO).
I met my husband Jean-Luc Matton, a bassist, while at an NMSO rehearsal. The only years I have missed the Cabrillo Festival were the years of my daughters’ births, Elise in ’92 and Camille in ’94. No matter what else I am playing and involved with on the home front, the musical highlight of the year has always been coming to Santa Cruz for the Cabrillo Festival!
