Jana Hunter of Lower Dens stopped by the WTMD Studios prior to her BSO Pulse collaboration to speak with Sam Sessa about getting her start playing violin in her school orchestra, and the connection she still has to classical music. She also shares some words of wisdom for young and aspiring musicians.

“This is not an impossible dream. This is accessible. This is something that shouldn’t be out of your reach even if you do encounter obstacles. This is something that everyone who has the dream, the talent and the drive should have access to.”

Season 2 of Pulse comes to a close on Thursday, May 11th at the Meyerhoff Symphony Hall with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra and Lower Dens. Tickets and info at BSOPulse.org.
