Viola

“When my elementary school music teacher walked into my third grade class, I raised my hand and said I wanted to play the viola. Five years later I was accepted into the New York Youth Symphony. where I was introduced to challenging orchestral repertoire.” From there, violist Jean Daniels attended summer music programs at the Luzerne Music Center, the NY State Summer School for the Arts, and Tanglewood. In college, she continued playing viola but chose to pursue academic interests beyond music. Today, Jean works as a mental health therapist and nurse practitioner in private practice, and encourages her clients to follow their musical and artistic pursuits to promote mind-body connection, self-expression, and emotional balance. Jean notes, “Playing with PCSO does all these things for me, and I’m grateful to the donors and audience members who support us!”
