To get a closer look, we asked Ms. Silverstein a few getting-to-know-you questions. Enjoy!
Where are you from and can you tell us something about that place?
I'm from Pittsburgh, PA, which is the home of Heinz Ketchup, the Pittsburgh Steelers, and more bridges than any other city on the planet!
What are your other hobbies and interests outside of music?
Plants, tea, painting, traveling, visiting lakes, cooking, and Marvel/Star Wars/Lord of the Rings!
What are some of the most interesting places you’ve traveled to?
I've traveled with a few different orchestras throughout Europe and China; my most recent trip was with a wind ensemble to Spain, where we performed in Barcelona and Granada. With my family, I've traveled to Iceland, Sweden, and Denmark, where we got to see the original Legoland park.
What board game or video game are you absolutely amazing at and why?
I like to think I’m fairly decent at checkers and Connect Four, and I love playing Apples to Apples.
What’s the last thing you read?
The last book I read was Evening in the Palace of Reason by James Gaines, which details J.S. Bach and King Frederick the Great’s lives and interactions, and discusses the Age of Enlightenment. A fascinating read, I promise!
Which meal is your favorite: breakfast, lunch, or dinner?
I absolutely love breakfast food. Waffles, pancakes, and French toast are my jam (no pun intended).
If you could have any exotic or wild animal as a pet, which would it be?
I think elephants would be adorable pets.
What is your favorite holiday and why?
I love Christmas because it's in the winter, and it's one of the few times a year my whole family gets together.
If you could time travel, when and where would you go?
I would go to the 1940s to experience the fashion and technology.
If you could relive one moment in your life, what would it be?
I would love to relive my last day of undergrad at Wheaton College. My friends and I snuck into the music department and played hide and seek the night before we graduated!
