Concert Rock Violinist Aaron

Who says sweets aren’t good for you? Motivated by a violin shaped cake, Aaron Meyer took up the instrument at age 5, performed with the Philadelphia Orchestra at age 11, and has been wowing audiences across the world ever since. As a Concert Rock violinist, Aaron combines the energy of contemporary music with the technical skill of a clasically trained performer, and has shared stages and recorded with Pink Martini, Smokey Robinson, The Temptations, and Everclear. The son of a violin teacher, Aaron is committed to music education and has been teaching with Young Audiences for the last 10 years. Portlanders can catch Aaron’s annual Holiday Concert December 21 and 22 and youngsters can participate in a FREE Music Education Workshop on Dec 22 at noon (click here to register).
