February 28, 2020 was the last time I walked onto a stage with my cello in my hands. Since then it has been a joy to invite, program and watch 350 colleagues perform on MDCH. It is now time for me to join them. These two programmes are emotional, evocative and reflective of the epic last seven months for me and my family. They also enable me to perform again with two dear friends who I have had the fortune to play on stages with around the world – Rosie Riebl and Stefan Cassomenos.
