Raúl Gómez-Rojas

As a kid growing up in the 90’s in Costa Rica, one of my favorite things to do was to take cassette tapes and record my favorite music straight from my hometown’s radio stations, from classical to salsa and beyond. Eventually, I started learning to play the violin and music became a powerful source of joy in my life. My adventures as a violinist, conductor and educator brought me to Portland in 2016 to work as Music Director of the Metropolitan Youth Symphony. At MYS, I enjoy working with a wonderful community of music students, their families, and our amazing conductors and coaches. I am passionate about using music as a vehicle to connect with others, and I enjoy chatting with music enthusiasts (of all ages!) about their own adventures and passions.
Raúl is a contributing host and producer of On Deck with Young Musicians.
