Since my orchestral debut with the Flint Symphony in Michigan in 1986, I have been fortunate enough to perform with many ensembles including the Kansas City Symphony, Houston Symphony and the North Carolina Symphony. I joined the Charlotte Symphony in 1995 and have since been featured as a soloist with both the symphony and the Charlotte Repertory Symphony to outstanding reviews. I have also performed with several festivals, including the Pacific Music Festival in Japan, May Music Festival in Charlotte, N.C., Gateways Music Festival in Rochester N.Y., the Music Academy of the West in Santa Barbara, Calif. and with Ritz Chamber Players on the Amelia Island Music Festival in Florida. Additionally, I have been a featured soloist and serve as a member of the Summerfest chamber music series in Kansas City, Mo.
