Hi everyone! My name is Amanda and I am excited to be running the 2020 Boston Marathon as part of Team Brookline, in support of the Brookline Symphony Orchestra! As a violinist and music teacher I’m thrilled to be able to combine my passion for music with my newfound love of running. After running a couple half marathons in 2019, I’m ready to take on my first full marathon in 2020 and couldn’t be happier that it’s Boston!
The Brookline Symphony Orchestra provides qualified volunteer musicians an opportunity to enhance their skills while enriching the cultural life of the community through affordable performances and outreach events. It is a treasured institution, not only because it enhances Brookline's cultural identity, but because of its dedication to giving back to the community. In addition to traditional concerts, the orchestra performs a number of free outreach events, including full orchestra concerts at schools, nursing homes, and hospitals.
