Bassist, Educator, Musician, Texan, Native Austinite. Mr.
Fahlund is at home playing with such groups as The Austin Symphony
Orchestra, and Austin Opera or in the pit orchestras of such theatres
as Austin Playhouse, Zachary Scott Theatre, and Zilker Theatre Productions.
Mr. Fahlund is a proud alumnus of The University of Texas at Austin, where
he was privileged to study Lower Strings with both Dr. David Neubert and
Mrs. Phyllis Young. In his twenty plus professional year career Mr. Fahlund
has had the pleasure of sharing the stage with such artists as Itzhak
Perlman, Yo-Yo Ma, Joshua Bell, Andrea Bocelli, Barbara Conrad, Bobby
McFerrin, Ghostland Observatory, and Willie Nelson.
Mr. Fahlund is also quite proud of the fact he is celebrating two decades as
a music educator this year. In his twenty years of teaching he has had the
privilege of working with numerous young musicians both in primary and
secondary schools as well as at the collegiate level. Helping young
musicians find their voice is a privilege that he does not take lightly. So
to his former and current students Mr. Fahlund wants to say thank you, for
allowing him to come along with their amazing journeys, and to let them
know that he is extremely proud of all of them.
Music like no other art form truly is nourishment for one's soul. Music
helps us celebrate the good times, and comforts us during the bad times.
