I love inspiring musicians to create unified and passionate artistic expressions in a way that captures the human imagination. I look for musical works in a variety of styles that elicit a unique and sympathetic response from the human spirit, and then use them to build concerts that are welcoming—that are designed to draw both new and experienced audience members into our performances.
