Colburn Conservatory of Music
How did you choose your instrument?
I was determined to play the bass when I was a kid. I used to listen to various symphonic and jazz recordings, and was fascinated by the low resonance the bass makes, the size and look of the instrument. I grew interested in the rhythmic pulse and harmonic foundation the bass provides, and it has a unique voice of its own.
What piece are you most excited to play this upcoming season?
I am most excited to perform Mahler’s 5th Symphony.
What have you learned from AYS so far and what are you hoping to gain from AYS in the future?
