Kendall Todd

Production Assistant

Kendall Todd grew up in San Diego, California, and is asked every day why she left. She is a graduate of Tufts University with degrees in French and International Relations. Her interest in music began at age 7, when she went to a Christmas pops concert and got to hold a violin in an instrument petting zoo; she fell in love, and the rest is history. She played in the San Diego Youth Symphony and the Tufts Symphony Orchestra, and especially enjoys being in string quartets. Outside of classical music, her hobbies include arguing about politics, binge-listening to history or science podcasts, and trying every locally-owned coffee shop in the Greater Boston Area. At WCRB, she does a little bit of everything, from behind-the-scenes tasks to filling in for current hosts.
