About our performers:
Pat Yingst - flute. Pat grew up playing piano and flute. In 1979 she completed a degree in music theory at the University of Houston, and following that returned to her career as a software developer while teaching piano in the evening. When it came time to retire from her profession she decided to use this precious time as an opportunity to revisit the flute. For the past 7 years she has studied with Seetha Shivaswamy. She enjoys playing with several large ensembles including the Austin Flute Choir, the Austin Philharmonic Orchestra, and the Balcones Community Orchestra. She is also in several chamber groups.
Melissa Ruof - violin. moved to Austin five years ago from the Washington, DC/Baltimore MD area where she worked as a freelance violinist/violist and as a teacher of violin/viola/chamber music. Ten years before coming to Austin, while living in the Sandtown neighborhood of Baltimore, she started a community art center, Jubileeartsbaltimore.org . The pull to Austin was a daughter and her family, which includes two of her adorable grandchildren. “I love playing music. With so many fun opportunities to play in orchestras and chamber groups, I’m having a great time. UT has such a terrific music school with concerts galore to enjoy, not to mention all the other art happenings around town. I’m active in the prison ministry of the Friends Meeting of Austin, and am volunteering with a grassroots lobbying organization trying to convince our Congress to create a refundable tax on carbon. Retirement turns out to be an exciting time of life!”
Catherine van Zanten - viola
