‘Why we joined the union’

Volume 119, No. 4April, 2019

I used to be a member of Local 802 and recently re-joined the union after taking a break. My previous union work was in jingles and other fields, and now I am playing in the pit orchestra of “Phantom of the Opera.” I love the music and the people…it’s just great! Music is food for my soul. I’m an international violin soloist who has performed with many of the world’s top orchestras, and I’m also a private teacher. I graduated from Curtis and later earned a DMA from Juilliard.
