I was fortunate enough to be 1 of 4 finalists in the Duluth-Superior Symphony Orchestra's 'Bridge Sessions'. For the competition, classically trained musicians were paired with more mainstream acts to create works that combined both styles. I was paired with violinist, and DSSO concert master, Erin Aldridge. One of the songs we performed was one of my new songs, called "Down With This Ship". We combined Vivaldi's "Spring:1st Movement" from the famous Four Seasons works. It was an incredible experience, one I am very thankful for, and proud to have been a part of. Check out the video to get an idea. Erin was absolutely fantastic!
