What inspires your love of music?
The real sense of pleasure on listening to excellent music is what inspires my love of music.
What initially drew you to the CSO?
When we initially moved to the Chicago area we heard good reports about the CSO and decided to investigate. Once we started, we never stopped.
Why do you feel it’s important to support the CSO as a member of the Theodore Thomas Society?
I wanted to repay the CSO for all the pleasure it has given us, and I have placed it in my will. However, the gift annuity is a way to start giving sooner. I did not feel comfortable giving an outright donation since I have just retired, so the gift annuity is a win-win situation for the CSO and me.
