On the Cover: Blake Hinson

Posted October 01, 2015

Star Wars or Star Trek? 

A. Star Wars

B. Star Trek

C. Neither

D. AAooooo….Noooo  (read: cannot compute, decision not possible)

If your answer was D, you and October’s On the Cover musician, Philharmonic double bassist Blake Hinson, can relate.

Get to know Blake through his video Q&A above.

You’ll also see Blake in action, behind the scenes, in another Instagram Tuesday Takeover. Bass nerds, Blake will blow your mind with his GoPro video of Rehearsal 9 of Ein Heldenleben.

Tune in to the Philharmonic’s Spotify account and jam along with Blake’s mixtape. See below.
