I have a teenage son who plays the cello in the San Jose Youth Chamber Orchestra.My college-age daughter started violin in public school in 3rd grade after a mixed Suzuki experience. In high school she played the violin, viola, ukulele, and bassoon at different times.
I started playing the violin when I was 7, in a public school program. I played violin throughout school and 2 years in college. I also studied violin for a school year in (then West) Berlin, Germany, at the Leo-Borchard-Musikschule.
I was a member of the Williamsville District Orchestra and the Greater Buffalo Youth Orchestra, in high school.
Afterwards, I played with the Princeton University Orchestra in college, and the Caltech-Occidental Symphony Orchestra as a postdoc.
I had two major breaks from playing violin, both lasting about 7 years, one to get a PhD in Neuroscience and one to have kids. I started playing violin again about 10 years ago, and have added viola. I am drawn to the sound and inner voice role of the viola and hope to become more proficient in that instrument.

When I lived in the Boston area, I played with the Arlington Philharmonic Orchestra from 2007-2015. I was the concertmaster for 7 years and I occasionally played viola with that group as well. I played chamber music with friends from the APO at local markets, and I often played for church services at First Parish Watertown, Unitarian-Universalist.
