I started playing the French horn in the middle school band growing up in Cle Elum, Washington. I joined the band with my husband, Adam, right after we moved to the Bay Area in 2007.
Being a member of the band has been a great way to find a community and make friends. I enjoy playing in the Pep Band. Sometimes the Pep Band provides music for LGBT events. When we play at non-LGBT events, we increase our visibility and build connections with other communities.
My favorite time of the band year is Band Camp. I love spending a whole weekend playing music in the outdoors and getting to know other people in the band.
