Feza Zweifel and his wife Heather are musicians. Feza is principal tympani of the National Arts Center Orchestra (Canada's national orchestra based in Ottawa, conducted by Pinchas Zuckerman.) They still own a home in Cleveland, Ohio, where they lived for many years and Heather, a trumpeter,  spends a portion of her time there as she still does a lot of music-making in the Cleveland area. She has also subbed several times in the orchestra in Ottawa.Feza was a founding member of the chamber group Proteus 7 (no longer acrive) and he and Heather are the founding members of Burning River Brass, both very active in the concert arena.

Below is a picture of Heather and Feza in front of their house.

They have spent a couple of summers a few years back painting the exterior:

Here are some Thanksgiving pictures of Feza and Heather from 2001:

Feza "al tavola." That's just his first helping. You also see him relaxing after the meal with Nicholas and Tim Clements. I think they're watching "Teletubbies!"

This year, 2003, Feza and Heather arrived for Thanksgiving a couple of days late (Heather had a gig the day after Thanksgiving). Feza did find time to give Jimmy Whitten a music lesson while Bailey Zweifel seems to be singing along.


Hobnobbing with celebrity athletes must run in the family:
Feza met Ernie Els when he and Heather visited the Clements in England recently.
