Favorite childhood memory
I had been taking piano lessons on an old clunker piano in the basement for about a year. It was so decrepit, the ivories looked like bad teeth and some of the black keys were missing. One day I came home from school and there was a new piano in the living room. I knew it meant my parents had faith that I would become a good pianist.
Bach: The 6 Unaccompanied Cello Suites performed by Yo-Yo Ma
Least favorite vegetable
Parsnips (I think - haven’t attempted them since I was a child)
Best vacation ever
