“amazing musical & cultural experiences…” ~ Christopher Gittings

Hi, I’m Christopher Gittings. I played Trumpet in the Wind Symphony, Pro Arte Orchestra, and Brass Choir as a Freshman and Sophomore in High School, Symphonic Orchestra and Brass Choir as a Junior and Senior.

I’m studying Cognitive Science at Case Western Reserve University as a Freshman in College. I am the captain of our Quidditch Team. I now play trumpet in the Case Symphonic Winds and Jazz Band. I also live a short walk away from Severance Hall where the Cleveland Orchestra plays and I love going to see them.

Performing with YOCJ exposed me to a whole genre of music that I hadn’t taken seriously before. It changed my musical tastes and the direction of my instrumental journey, providing me many amazing musical and cultural experiences, which I’ll never forget.

Congrats on the new website!

Best, Chris
