Each of Louise’s four siblings played an instrument (or two) throughout childhood, so her first training ground was at home. She took further education at the Eastman School of Music and the Curtis Institute. Louise played in the Radio and Television Orchestra in Brussels, Belgium and in the UK, and gave recitals and freelanced while raising two children. She performs with Allegro Baroque and Beyond and is a member of the Spokane Symphony. Louise manages the Inland Empire Cello Ensemble and teaches cello at Spokane Falls Community College as well as at Holy Names.
