Player Biographies: Bruce Hayes, Violin
Bruce Hayes grew up in Ithaca, New York, where he played in a wonderful high school orchestra. In his college years he played in the Bach Society Orchestra at Harvard University. He lives in West Los Angeles and in his professional life is a linguistics professor at UCLA. He joined the Palisades Symphony in 2007. It's been a great chance to meet really nice people and to become more familiar with great classical repertoire -- to fall in love with a work of music, there's really nothing like practicing and performing it.
