Dr. Beck is currently the adjunct bassoon teacher at the University of Redlands, California State University Northridge, Pomona College, and Idyllwild Arts Academy.

She was formerly principal bassoonist of the Buffalo Philharmonic and the Orchesta Sinfonica del Principado de Asturias in Spain.

He plays regularly with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, the Pacific Symphony, and numerous other Southern California orchestras. In 2001, he was the guest principal oboist of the Kansas City Symphony for two months. Dr. Davis has played with the New York Woodwind Quintet and the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center. He studied with John Ferrillo and Elaine Douvas at Juilliard where he earned Master of Music and Doctor of Musical Arts degrees in Oboe Performance. He also studied with Ronald Roseman at Yale where his degree was a B.A. (cum laude) in East Asian Studies.
Flutist Susan Greenberg enjoys a versatile career as soloist, chamber musician, symphony player, and recording artist. The Los Angeles Times has lauded her “panache." A 36 year member of the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, she has also appeared as guest soloist with the San Francisco and Oakland Symphonies, the Santa Monica Symphony, the Napa Valley Symphony, and at the Hollywood Bowl. She has performed with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, L.A.

She was a fellowship recipient to Tanglewood and to the Music Academy of the West. She received both her B.A., cum laude, and her M.A. from UCLA.
