This week, we meet third year French horn fellow Matt Eckenhoff. Matt refused to play anything other than French horn when he first started in music. Matt has already had some professional experience - he talks a bit about his stint with the Honolulu Symphony. Matt has a few things already lined up for next season - he says it's largely because of his experiences at the NWS that he has so many career options in front of him.Listen Backstage with the New World Symphony - Matt Eckenhoff
