HAL ROOSA / JUNIOR / 2 YEAR MEMBER

How long have you been playing cello?

I have been playing cello for about 10 years now.

What drew you to it?

The amazing and gorgeous sound drew me into it.

Besides music, what else are you passionate about?

I love video games and sneakers.

Who's your favorite Cleveland sports team?

Definitely the Cavaliers.

If you were going to play a brass or woodwind instrument, which would you pick?

I would probably want to play the trumpet since it has a rich, sharp sound similar to that of the cello.

What's your favorite color?

Red.

Tell us your favorite joke.

I don't exactly have a favorite joke because pretty much everything that is funny to others is funny to me as well.

If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go?

I would probably have to say London, England due to its rich history and amazing culture.

What's one type of music you don't like to listen to at all?

I absolutely do not like country music. To me it's overrated and all sounds the same, but that is only my opinion.
