I have spent my life with music. During the summers of my youth, I either could be found at music camp or listening to music at Tanglewood. I then studied music and literature at Sarah Lawrence College where I played chamber music, was solo flute in the orchestra, sang in the college chorus, and was a charter member of the Westchester Chorale. After college, I played in pick-up orchestras as a free-lance flutist and sang in the New York Choral Society. I played solo flute in the Westchester Philharmonic and was a student of Samuel Baron. Always active in music, after finishing a doctorate in English and publishing a book on the modern Irish poet Austin Clarke, I taught flute lessons and played chamber music while teaching English on the college level. I am still singing (now in the New Chorale Society of Westchester) and playing the flute avocationally. I also served as President of the Scarsdale Friends of Music and the Arts, an organization furthering musical performance in the community.

A profile of me and my program notes was featured in The Strad Magazine (June 2001).
