This week, we meet second year viola fellow Jeremy Baumann. Jeremy will start a new job in September - section violist with the Calgary Philharmonic. He talks about why it's a "dream come true."

And, Jeremy describes his rather unconventional childhood with his percussionist mother.Listen Jeremy Baumann
