I started playing the cello in the 5th grade and continued through high school. After graduation, I had to stop because the cello was supplied by the school and I couldn’t afford to buy one. After a 31 year hiatus, I was able to buy a cello and start cello lessons. Thanks to Joanna and Scott Chaurette, the Seven Hills Symphony Orchestra was born in 2005 and despite my level of skill, I became a charter member. Music plays a very important part in my life and I feel I am very lucky to be associated with this orchestra. SHS brings the joy of music to both its members and the community. In addition to playing the cello, I am a Professor of Anesthesiology, Perioperative Medicine and Surgery at the University of Massachusetts Medical School. Clinically, I work in the operating rooms and surgical intensive care units of UMass Memorial Medical Center.

I’ve been practicing law in Worcester for 30-plus years. When I picked up the cello and started taking lessons about ten years ago, I never imagined I’d be playing the classical music I so love as a member of an orchestra. The Seven Hills Symphony under Scott’s leadership has been one of the great pleasures in my life. I look forward, not just to the concerts, but to each and every rehearsal and even the board meetings.
