About Heather

Hello and thanks for stopping by!

While my real job has me working a full schedule during the week, my love of classical music motivates me to write this blog. I grew up playing classical music on the piano and also played the clarinet through college. Sure, I spent three years in the Indiana University Marching Hundred and Pep Band, but my love will always be for the music of the Classical, Baroque and Early music eras. (Igor Stravinsky is growing on me though! And OMG – have you heard Peter Boyer’s Symphony No 1? WOW!)

I have no idea where this is going, but I fully plan to have fun with it. Giocoso = playful, so it’ll be positive, fun and upbeat. Since this is a blog, I sure hope you’ll leave comments and let me know what you think.

Thanks so much – ENJOY!

  1. Hi Heather, I just recently discovered your blog and want to thank you for writing about the Columbus Symphony on a regular basis. As a member of the orchestra for decades, I really appreciate the attention you are generating. Doug Fisher, Second Bassoon

    • Oh my gosh – what a nice thing to say. Thank you! I love classical music, I really do, so I’m grateful for such a wonderful symphony 10-minutes from home! (Grandview) I’m happy to write about it so please feel free to spread the word. This blog was put together the beginning of June. Maybe if more people hear about the treasure we have in our symphony, it’ll help ensure its continued existence. We need good music performed by high-quality musicians and the CSO is a great source for that! 🙂

  2. Hi Heather the pic of you on your blog reminds me of the bugs bunny cartoon ” kill the rabbit kill the rabbit” love it … and if you have not seen it, I believe it is a spin on Flight of the Valkyries in any event it is a great classic both actually

    • HA HA! Thanks, Theresa! Yeah – I’ve posted some Bugs Bunny / Elmer Fudd cartoons before – like the one that was set to Rossini’s Barber of Seville. We had such great cartoons as kids, didn’t we?!
