Ilona started her musical journey playing piano and singing in choirs while in elementary school.  She picked up the clarinet in high school and loved playing in the concert band and orchestra at Runnymede C.I.  She had several years hiatus from musical ensembles while studying Civil Engineering at U of T.  After graduating and settling down, she was thrilled to find local community concert bands to play her clarinet again with the Mississauga Concert Band, Etobicoke Community Concert Band, and Toronto Concert Band.  It’s wonderful to share the love of music with such interesting people from many backgrounds – such talented musicians!
