Cellist Coleman Itzkoff

February 25, 2013

Meet Coleman Itzkoff

Coleman Itzkoff (pictured, at left) is the newest PT Young Artist-in-Residence. He's 20 and a cello student at the Shepherd School of Music at Rice University in Houston. He comes from a long line of musicians, and in fact plays on a cello that belongs to his grandfather. Coleman will be with us in the PT studios all week. Today, he'll play a cello sonata by Beethoven.
