Meet the Musicians
Ali Cook, bass. Ali’s dream of earning a spot in the double-bass section of a major orchestra ground to a halt when she was seized by a painful syndrome that rendered her arms useless at times. Forced to confront this fork in the road, Ali emerged from the experience healed, and in the process, discovered a trove of music and poetry within her waiting to be shared with the world. She now focuses on launching her career as a singer/song-writer, and enjoys side projects and engagements, including teaching, arranging, playing in QuinTango, and appearing with the National, Baltimore, and Detroit Symphonies.
