EMSO is a marvelous community orchestra that features artistic collaborations with a number of Twin City organizations. Although my performance experience over the years has been in percussion, playing in a variety of wind ensembles, orchestras, jazz bands, pit bands, (even RnR bands but don’t tell!), playing cello with this organization is the most satisfying and rewarding of my musical experiences. I graduated in music from Northern Illinois and West Virginia universities, was married 33 years, am originally from Illinois, and enjoy time with my adult children, restaurant adventures, BBQs, and music performances of any style.
