Catherine Mikelson headshotWhat city are you living in now? Marriottsville, MD

Where did you study? B.M. Peabody Conservatory of the Johns Hopkins University, M.M. Carnegie Mellon University

What is your favorite piece of music? I have no favorite, but I’m always in the mood to listen to Appalachian Spring by Aaron Copland.

What do you enjoy in your spare time? Gardening both with native plants and veggies, trying new vegan recipes, reading popular fiction, spending time with my husband, Pete, and toddler, Margot.

What is your fondest Annapolis Symphony memory? I loved playing with late cellist and legend, Lynn Harrell. He was such a nice, non-assuming man despite his size, and he was very respectful and appreciative of the orchestra. I’ll always remember his encore of Saint-Saens “The Swan.” It was touching.
