Valerie Tisdel, Violin

Valerie Tisdel is a veteran member of the "Freeway Philharmonic". Her main gigs are Marin, Modesto and Symphony Silicon Valley, as well as Opera San José and subbing at SF Opera, but she has played with every orchestra from Santa Rosa to Santa Cruz at least once.

Ms. Tisdel studied violin with Daniel Kobialka at SF State (where she was a member of the Morrison Scholarship Quartet) and Rafael Bronstein at Manhattan School of Music. Tom Heimburg introduced her to the viola at SF State and she has been torn between them ever since.
