Get to know your fellow swimmers

Happy Friday everyone! Here’s another installment of “Get to know your fellow swimmers – Marian Concus”. Marian is one of our original swimmers.

Where were you born? Berkeley, CA

Where did you grow up? Berkeley, CA

Schools attended? UC Berkeley for a while. I was in Flutist Michel Debost’s Master Class in Paris for two years. I got a degree from New England Conservatory.

What was your job/career after school? Flutist. I currently am Piccoloist with Santa Cruz and Fremont Symphonies and am the Flute Coach at Bellarmine College Preparatory School. I have played this, that, and almost everything else on the flute, in all sorts of venues. My current project is figuring out how not to emit aerosols while playing the flute. Flute playing and masks just don’t work together……..

What fun fact or something we wouldn’t know about you that you could tell us? My non-swimmer husband and I bought our house in Downtown Mountain View when dinosaurs roamed the earth, before Eagle Pool was built. I am thrilled to now live walking distance from my preferred swimming location.

How many years have you been swimming with MVM? Since Eagle Pool opened in 1989.
