Instagram art sensation, Nibhanadupi, a.k.a. @thesixthsun, reached out to me and asked if he could create this image inspired by one of my portraits. It was an honor to be his muse!
In celebration of the BCSO’s 70th anniversary, Maestro Kraemer chose an epic program. It included Mahler, Stravinsky, Debussy, Gershwin and more. Pictured, Maestro Kraemer and myself at the post-concert reception.
In support of the Kennedy Center’s “Arts Across America”, program, Yo Yo Ma joined the Youngstown and Warren Symphonies in a free concert promoting the arts. I was lucky enough to share a stand and my cello with Yo Yo, and he shared his amazing spirit with us. A day I will never forget!
Birthday concert for my dear friend and oboist, Naomi Bensdorf. We had the good fortune of performing her birthday concert with the amazing Matthias Pintscher on the podium. A celebration I will never forget!
I had the honor of performing under the baton of Maestro Pintscher in Chicago, summer, 2017. A priceless experience!
Well, folks, the cat’s out of the bag. I LOVE playing rock music. I love playing jazz. I love electronica and all points in between. The day I got to play “We’re Not Gonna Take it” with Dee Snider of Twisted Sister was an incredible day. He’s still got it!

Had the honor of sharing the stage with a true fairy princess…Máréad Nesbitt of Celtic Women wowed us all with her beautiful violin playing and dream-like stage presence. Backstage selfie, Rocktopia, 2018
