The 48-year-old double-bassist and composer has won a Grammy Award, the Avery Fisher Prize, and the MacArthur Foundation “Genius Grant” for musicianship. Meyer is in Portland, because he will perform with the Oregon Symphony on January 17, 18, and 19.

Meyer’s class is sponsored by the Community Music Center and the Oregon Symphony. Count your lucky stars if you get the chance to study with him.
