Do you or have you played a musical instrument? If so, which and why?
I have studied and performed to various extents on several instruments (violin, viola, trumpet, trombone, piano, guitar, and percussion). I’ve never been able to get the hang of woodwinds. Currently I sing bass with Pride Chorus Houston.
What’s the most memorable performance you have ever seen?
I can’t narrow it down past my top three (in no particular order):
An outstanding show by Mnozil Brass at Mechanics Hall in Worcester, full of musicianship and humor in a glorious space.
A breathtaking rendition of “Let it Be” by a street musician outside the Pantheon.
More recently, the first “back-to-normal” Carnegie Mellon Philharmonic concert in September 2021 – I played the first half but hearing my colleagues again from the audience in the second half (Beethoven’s “Eroica”) was deeply moving.
