Austin Larson

Instrument: Horn

Hometown: Neenah, WI 

Education: B.M. University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music, A.D. Curtis Institute of Music

Joined the CSO in 2019

Inspiration as a musician: My colleagues, friends, mentors and students, all who have their own unique skill set and story to tell.

Favorite things to do in Cincinnati: Walk around OTR and the Banks, and if I have time, hike up to Bellevue Hill Park and admire the view. 

Favorite food: Italian; I'm half Italian so both cooking and eating are in my DNA. 

Fun fact: I've never owned a car. 

How can the Orchestra make the world a better place? Be a force for good both at home and abroad and above all, never let the music stop. Music has the power to heal and bring together the community but also to build bridges and understanding on a greater level. Without community and harmony, there is no orchestra.
