CBC 4: A. Anderson interview


I had the great pleasure recently of doing an interview with Lyric Opera of Chicago and Grant Park Symphony Orchestra bassist Andrew Anderson. Andy gave a great interview on a variety of subjects.

In this first part of the interview we discuss Andy’s early years in music, the schools he attended, the type of gigs he played while in college, and advice on what auditions a student should take during school. Expect to hear much more from Andy in future podcasts.
