Q&A with Kayleigh

How long have you worked with Symphony Nova Scotia?
2020/21 is my fourth season with the Symphony. I’m proud to work with an incredible, dedicated team—one that has continued to create and share live music (and a podcast!) with you both in person and online. I’m looking forward to seeing you at the Symphony soon. I’ll be wearing my mask, but I’ll be smiling!

What’s the best Symphony Nova Scotia concert you’ve seen?
These days, I’m grateful for the memories of all the Symphony concerts I’ve seen — from our 2012 Fusion with Gypsophilia to our 2020 Beethoven Festival. Whatever your taste, we’ve got something for you to Watch Online!

What’s your favourite food?
I’ve recently perfected the grilled cheese.

What’s your favourite book?
It tends to be whatever I’m reading. I’ve “read” a lot of audiobooks in lockdown, and would also recommend audiobooks read by their authors!

What are you listening to right now?
I listen to CBC Radio 2 when I’m at my desk. The pandemic twist on that has been to stand up and stretch when they do the news. It’s a good reminder to move!
