Mandi is a manager at Key Bank in Salt Lake City, but is originally from Houston, Texas. She grew up playing the viola and she can pinpoint the reason why to a single moment when her father took her and her sisters to the Nutcracker Ballet one Christmas Eve. It reminds us that small things can make a significant impact on the lives of our children and everyone else we share music with.
Not that you care, but my favorite piece to listen to (and watch) is the Arabian Dance. The tempo in this version is a little slow, but visually, it’s the best one I can find.
