Up next in our cello spotlights, Lisa!

Question 1: Could you tell me a little bit about yourself?
I’m founder and President of Camino Life Coaching & Consulting and work with people who say “Someday I want this” or “Someday I’ll do that,” and decide to act on their “somedays.” Through the use of traditional and non-traditional tools, my clients create a life they’re excited to wake up to every day. 
Question 2: What brought or inspired you to pursue cello? If you’d like to share one of your favorite pieces of music as well, I’d like to know!
In fifth grade, we were required to choose an instrument. My teeth were a mess, so winds and brass were out. I chose violin, but found it high-pitched and shrill so the next year I switched to cello. My decision was also influenced by the fact my big brother played cello. 
Question 3: What do you enjoy most about being with the Rogue Valley Symphony?
Most? Not sure how to rank them, but I enjoy that the players are welcoming, care about the music, and get together to play chamber music; Board members genuinely care about the orchestra, and are supportive of new approaches. This was particularly evident when the pandemic began. I admire the creative, playful way Martin and Joelle innovated our programs and their delivery, and found ways to continue to connect to the audience during the pandemic. 
Question 4: What do you do when you’re not playing music i.e. what are your hobbies or interests?
I love nature and the proximity of the watershed and all its trails, dancing, and attending theater and live music events.
Question 5: Finally, one unusual fact, story, or tidbit about you or your instrument?  
I read tarot cards.
Did you enjoy this issue?
