Meet the Musicians

Joyce DubachName: Joyce Dubach
Hometown: Columbia City, Indiana
Instrument: Violin
Years in the MSO: 25+ years

What would be your dream place to perform?
I think it would be fun to perform anywhere as a part of a great orchestra playing great music. Examples: LA Philharmonic playing Mahler, Chicago Lyric Opera Pit playing Gounod Faust, anywhere in Vienna playing Mozart.


What is your favorite movie score and why?
I love the film music of Bernard Herrman (Citizen Kane, Psycho, Vertigo, Taxi Driver, etc.) The music is such an integral part of the film and really heightens the drama and suspense.


Other then playing your instrument, what do you like to do?
I like reading, especially authors like Dickens, Trollope, Thomas Hardy, Jane Austen, and John Steinbeck. I like watching films, especially the works of Akira Kurosawa and I like to do counted cross stitch.


What is your day job?
I teach band and orchestra in the Wawasee School Corporarion in Syracuse, Indiana.
