Ah Michelle. She's the sharpest dresser i've ever known. I should have started out with her musicianship but she really does have a fantastic sense of style. But she can play. When we need someone nail the violin in 'Baba O Riley - she's our first call.
Michelle plays with orchestras all over the world. Yet she jumps at the chance to work with us. I couldn't be happier. She understands the way that we like to work like an orchestra and embraces that.
But she can get out of her comfort zone and push the limits. I love the way we toured the Abbey Road show and once at the theater, Michelle would scour the wings and storage rooms for a clangy piece of pipe that sounded just right for 'Maxwell's Silver Hammer'.
She's a wonderful hang and an incredible musician. We're lucky to have her.
