What is something interesting that people may not know about you?
Every Wednesday morning I lead a sing-a-long group for over 60s in my local area.

What are you hoping to learn this summer at the NRO?
This summer, I would love to enhance and develop the current skills I have gained from all my previous work experience. I also hope to gain a vast array of new skills and am curious to see how an American orchestra functions differently to one in the UK.

Going to the watch musical theatre or classical music in London
