Being a part of the arts has been something ingrained in my life since before I was born. Both sides of my family are very musically inclined: it's how my parents met; it's how I wrangled my rather exuberant personality, and how I bonded with my friends and family. I wasn't quite gifted with the musical talent the rest of my family has, but I discovered my gift was filmmaking and storytelling. I feel very lucky to take those skills and apply them here every day at the DSO to tell our story and share the mission and voices within the organization with a wider audience. ”

- Natalie Berger, DSO Video Content Specialist
