Laura Tesarowski

“Every Monday at 4:45 the magic moment comes when I get into my car, crank up the tunes, and take the trip down to Los Altos to enjoy spending the next 3 hours with some of my favorite people where I get to make the music that has become such an essential part of my life. In my tenure at Cantabile I have enjoyed learning about everything from ancient Balinese rituals to the origin of the Russian Cyrillic alphabet, mixed in with a little bit of jazz along the way. I have been inspired by my teachers at Cantabile to look beyond the notes and rhythms to find the meaning of a piece, and now as I go off to university I hope to become as excellent a teacher as the ones who have inspired me over the years. I love this choir so much, and missing it will certainly take some getting used to next year.”
