How did you choose your instrument?
I chose the double bass because I developed interest in both classical music and jazz at the ripe age of 10 years old. The beautiful double bass caught my eye as it was twice my size!
What piece are you most excited to play this upcoming season?
I am most looking forward to performing Shostakovich’s 6th Symphony as well as the gorgeous 2nd Piano Concerto of Rachmaninoff at my debut performance at the Walt Disney Concert Hall.
What have you learned from AYS so far and what are you hoping to gain from AYS in the future?
Playing with AYS has been a fruitful experience so far as the youngest member of the bass section and playing with guys from all over the map from Michigan to South Dakota to San Diego. All I hope to gain from AYS in the future is the opportunity to perform with a passionate group of young musicians who love what I love.
