Meet your Florida Orchestra members: Lewis Sligh, piccolo/flute

With the orchestra since: 1993

I'm originally from: Atlanta

Age I started studying my instrument: 12

My nickname for my instrument is: The Little Beast

My favorite piece to play on my instrument: Shostakovich symphonies

My iPod's usually playing: Silly Wizards; audio books

I'm an expert at: cooking Chinese food

But I'm really lousy at: cleaning up the kitchen after cooking Chinese food

Career path if I hadn't chosen music: Egyptologist

Some little-known, yet interesting fact about me: I collect recordings of really bad singers.

The question I'm asked most often about my instrument (and my answer): Why did you choose the piccolo? I have a rather quiet personality and in a group it is difficult for me to be heard; but when I play the piccolo, you have to listen to me!
