Jean has been an enthusiastic member of the orchestra since the fall of 1997. She played recorder in third grade, and then moved on to clarinet and piano. In college she returned to the recorder to play for fun with friends from (of all places) the marching band. Medical school, a career as a pediatrician, and raising a family interrupted her recorder playing for 20 years.

With the encouragement of Gene Reichenthal, she began playing recorder again and hasn’t looked back. She enjoys the wonderful people she has met through RONY and RSLI and the challenge of learning new things all the time!

Her dog performs duets with her by howling when she practices. Everyone is a critic….
