Instrument: Harp

With the RPO since: 1987

My earliest musical memory is attending the Detroit Symphony Children's concerts.

Most influential teachers: Harpists Charles Kleinsteuber, Alice Chalifoux and Elyse Yockey; pianist John Simms

Favorite composers: Debussy and Ravel

What do you most enjoy about performing? Watching my audience enjoy learning about the harp.

What is your favorite part of being a member of the RPO? Making music with wonderful musicians

When I'm not onstage, you might find me in the kitchen baking bread.

I love to dine at home with my family.

What do think is the Orchestra's most important role in our community? We can provide an aesthetic experience to the community. Music is truly the international language and we are fortunately in a position to provide this service to everyone through subscription concerts and free programs as well as other venues.
