Koko and Leah are professional violists in the Denver area who perform with the Colorado Symphony, Colorado Springs Philharmonic, and Central City Opera Orchestras.
They completed graduate school together at Rice University's Shepherd School of Music in Houston, Texas. During their time in Houston, they were very active as performers and music educators: they taught private lessons in four different Houston area school districts, as well as coached small ensembles, sectionals, and All-State excerpt clinics.
Leah and Koko also performed with Houston's leading ensembles, such as the Houston Symphony, Mercury Baroque Orchestra, Houston Grand Opera, Houston Ballet, and Austin Symphony.
They have been married since September 2013, and moved to Denver in 2016 when Leah was awarded a full-time position with the Colorado Symphony.
