Most memorable Next-Level PerformancePlaying with a great ensemble like the Colorado Symphony is always exciting, but every time I get to perform with the orchestra at Red Rocks Ampitheatre in front of 10,000 people…that is inspiring!
What Drives Your Creativity?I love that music makes me feel joyful and connected to people. When an audience member, or other musician, shares with me that my music making was meaningful to them, I know that all the hard work is worth it.
