Orchestra member since 1998
I take special pride in the great energy, cooperation, emotions between the conductor or soloists, ourselves and the audience. When the different temperaments are reconciled and these energies interact through the power of music. After all these years in the orchestra, I always welcome this feeling with joy.
I am, above all, a mum, a wife and a cellist. Maybe somebody could add something… Music fills my life, a great part of me and my family. Inspiration, motive, pain, sadness, hapiness – it accompanies all my moods.
