As a guest of the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra, I toured North and South America, Europe and Asia, and recorded with Jan Lisiecki on Deutsche Grammophon. In May of 2022, my dream came true when the musicians of Orpheus made me a member.
Orchestra of St. Luke’s. Founded in 1978, the OSL is one of New York City’s most experienced and versatile ensembles. From performances with Bono to Sir Roger Norrington to Paul Taylor American Dance, OSL does it all. I respect this group of musicians, administrators and donors so much. I joined the roster in 2009.
Ensemble Échappé is a sinfonietta dedicated to music of the 21st century. I joined when it was founded, in 2015.
On the artist roster of the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center since 2016, I’ve played numerous projects at CMS, including 14 performances of Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto No. 1. Their December Brandenburgs project is one of my all-time favorite NYC events.
As a freelancer, I play a variety of other jobs: Broadway shows, orchestra and choral concerts, chamber music concerts, ballets, operas, jingles, soundtracks, big band dates, music videos. New York is the very best place to be a freelance musician, and I absolutely love the variety.
I play a Sorley GS1 and the first production Atkinson-Dunker 318. They are both beautiful horns! I feel fortunate to have had them both built especially for me by small production shops in the USA. I use them both a lot, depending on the demands of the music I’m playing. Right now, I’m playing the triple more, as I’m still figuring it out since picking it up in Burbank in November 2019. Fun! Horns!
