Backstage Pass: Jessica Hull-Dambaugh
We recently caught up with CSO Principal Flute, Jessica Hull-Dambaugh, for a little chat about her favorite local restaurants, being a new mom, and more. Jessica has been with the CSO since 2004 and will be featured during the Chamber Orchestra Series concert on October 30, 2012.
How are you spending your time this summer?
Enjoying being a mother to my 6 month old little boy, Kyle.
Jessica and baby Kyle
How will summer 2012 differ from your previous summers?
This is the first summer in five years I've haven't gone away to any festivals. I'm enjoying spending it home with my family.
If you could choose anything, how would you choose to spend your summer?
In the mountains doing a lot of hiking.
What’s your favorite summertime memory from your childhood or teenage years?
My family and I used to go camping with our trailer a lot across the US when I was young. As a teenager, I went on a tour of Europe with a band group when I was 16 - I'll never forget that trip.
When you have free time, what do you do with it?
What's this "free time" you speak of?! Right now all my free time is of course spent taking care of my little guy, but outside of that I'm a huge fitness buff and regularly teach aerobics and spinning around the Charleston area.
What are you most looking forward to for the 2012-2013 CSO season?
Performing the CPE Bach
Flute Concerto with the orchestra in October. I've always wanted to perform this piece and am so excited to get the opportunity to do so!
What are your favorite things to do in Charleston?
We love hanging out at White Point Garden
with my husband, son, and lab/boxer mix Zoe. When the weather is nice we could spend a whole afternoon there people watching. We also love the beach at Sullivan's Island and going to the dog parks around town. My favorite restaurants are Sesame
, Boulevard Diner
, and of course Ye Ole Fashioned Cafe & Ice Cream
Is there anything else you’d like to add?
I'm very excited to witness the growing community support for the CSO and am excited to see where it can take us in the coming years!
