Strings Welcomes New Music Director, Michael Sachs

Most of you have probably heard that we have hired and have been collaborating with our new music director, Michael Sachs. For the past 26 years, Sachs has been Principal Trumpet for the Cleveland Orchestra and fell in love with Colorado years ago when he spent a summer in Aspen. He and harpist Yolanda Kondonassis were later married in Aspen and are looking forward to spending their summer with their 11-year old daughter creating new memories in Steamboat Springs spending the summer away from their hometown of Cleveland. Did you know that the Cleveland Orchestra continues to be one of the most sought-after performing orchestras in the world? Strings couldn’t be more thrilled to have such an accomplished musician leading the Strings Classical Series.

Praised by critics for his “spectacular chops” and “radiant tone,” he is recognized internationally as a leading soloist, recitalist, chamber musician, teacher, author and clinician.
