Hello! I am a professional violist, currently residing in Jamaica Plain, MA. Music has given me the opportunity to perform all over the U.S. and abroad, from little towns in Colorado to opera houses in Prague. Most recently, I have been enjoying performing with Boston Baroque, Grand Harmonie and Harvard Baroque Chamber Orchestra on my baroque viola. I also play with a number of regional orchestras in the Greater Boston area on modern viola. But above all, whether it's on modern or baroque viola, I love playing chamber music, and Groupmuse has made it wonderfully easy to create informal soirees that bring people from many different backgrounds together over music!
