Andrew Larson

Wednesday, November 19, 2014

This week, we meet first year cello fellow Andrew Larson. Andrew talks about his "ah hah!" moment - the moment he knew he wanted to become a professional musician. He also talks about his biggest career goal: to play with three orchestras in his life, including one European orchestra. And, finally, Andrew is a swimmer - and he sees some pretty obvious connections between swimming and making music.
