Ali & Frank Donnelly III Chair
When you meet Andres, ask him… Who is his favorite Superhero? Where did he first learn to play violin? What’s the best part about being a dad?
Andrés González has performed as a soloist, chamber musician, and orchestral player throughout the United States, Venezuela, and Europe. His playing has earned him many opportunities to appear as a soloist with several distinguished symphonic ensembles. Mr. González has been featured as a guest artist with the Ocala Symphony, the Sunrise Symphonic Pops, New World School Symphony Orchestra, and the Sewanee Summer Music Festival Orchestra.
In 2000, Mr. González moved to Houston to pursue a Master’s in Music at Rice University, where he studied with Sergiu Luca. A native Texan, he now resides in Houston where he regularly performs with ROCO, Mercury, and Houston Grand Opera Orchestra. He is on staff at Bridges Academy, where he teaches violin.
