Humberto Gonzalez Violin / Viola
Music has been a family tradition for three generations. My grandfather, my uncles and my father were classical musicians and now my brother, my cousins and I also play in symphony orchestras.
In my childhood I will attend concerts of classical music to hear my father and my uncles play with the most famous orchestras in Mexico City. So I grew up with the dream of being a good musician like my grandfather, my father and my uncles.
At the age of twelve, I started my studies of classical mandolin and violin with my paternal grandfather Manuel Gonzalez. After studying for three years with my grandfather, I was accepted at the National Conservatory of Music in Mexico City, where I began my formal studies with great violinists like Espin Yepez, Hector Olvera and Sergei Fedotov. At the age of 18 I enter the Coyoacan's Youth Symphony Orchestra in Mexico City where I played for 2 years. At the age of 20 I became a member of the Mexico's Navy Symphony Orchestra and of the National Philharmonic Orchestra of the University of Mexico where I played professionally for 8 years.
At the age of 28 I was awarded with a full scholarship to continue my studies in music at the University of Southern Mississippi in the United States.
I am currently a member of the Montgomery County Symphony Orchestra and the Trinity Chamber Orchestra in Maryland.
