I started playing the cello in 4th grade and stayed with it, along with piano, through my first year of college. Life took me different directions and I put it down until after I had settled in Farmington in the mid-1990s. Since then, I have found many new avenues for playing including Showcase Concerts, San Juan College, the San Juan Symphony, Dead Composers Society, Tres Rios Quartet, Durango Bach Festival, and most recently the Red Rocks Chamber Ensemble in Gallup. Outside of music, I enjoy cooking, nature, and working with my hands in general.

Mick Hesse presents “Hope, Not Hate” is dedicated to Ervin Schulhoff. Schulhoff was born in Prague in 1894 and died of tuberculosis at the internment camp in Wülzburg in 1942. He wrote 8 symphonies as well as many works for string quartet, piano and various smaller ensembles. Communism, Dadaism, traditional American music and jazz had a strong influence on his compositions.
