Dianne (Wachsman) Betkowski (CFA’86) of Denver, Colo., writes, “After a career of performing in orchestras such as the St. Louis Symphony, the Utah Symphony, and the Honolulu Symphony, and having had compositions performed by, among others, the National, Honolulu, St. Louis, and Houston Symphonies and the Rochester Philharmonic, I have become the cellist of a world music/ jazz band based in Denver, called Miguel Espinoza Flamenco Fusion. Our second CD was released in September 2020. We started a nonprofit called Urban Arts Music, which began hosting an amazing summer music camp.” Learn more at and Email Dianne at
