"I completed tutti's Music Director Observership with Rona Saddiqui. Rona is amazing. Through her efforts, I was able to join her for a few days as she music-directed an exciting new musical. At a time when so much learning is virtual, there are certain things one can only pick up from being in the room. I learned so much by watching Rona work, music direct, and getting to spend a little time with her. Her kindness, willingness to share her own experiences and field questions, are all qualities I deeply admire.
