As Neo Classical’s second author, Ms. Mulcahy took over the column in June, 2007. After playing several years as a full-time violinist with the Richmond Symphony Orchestra, Ms. Mulcahy has enjoyed a productive career as a freelance violinist in Chicago, where she performs regularly with Music of the Baroque, the Chicago Opera Theater, and the Milwaukee Symphony.
