Confluence - Scientist Chanteuse
Folk-pop musician Vienna Teng, from computer scientist to singer/songwriter with a big voice and small footprint. That's right, Teng studied computer science at USC and even worked as a software engineer at Cisco. But since 2002, she's been on the road playing the piano and singing her heart out in places like the David Letterman Show or opening for Madeleine Peyroux. In 2007 she launched her Green Caravan Tour which reatured eco-friendly tour merchandise, carbon offsets, and donating a portion of her CD royalties and tickets sales to nonprofits like Union of Concerned Scientists and others selected by her fans. Rock on Vienna!
