LA Opera Orchestra Principal Bass Nathan Farrington takes you on a musical safari ranging from Haydn to Hank Williams. Nate will be joined on piano by best buddy Teddy Abrams (Music Director of the Louisville Orchestra), LA Opera Concertmaster Roberto Cani, percussionist Gabriel Globus-Hoenich and guitarist Molly Miller.
