On Deck with Diego Fernandez
Adam Eccleston shares a heart-to-heart moment with flutist and All Classical Portland Young Artist Ambassador, Diego Fernandez. This joyous junior of South Salem High School has already contributed much to our greater Portland community. Diego is a well-rounded musician supporting works of modern living composers of diverse background. He has aspirations to become a leading professional flutist in order to inspire others like him. Currently, Diego plays second flute and piccolo with the Portland Youth Philharmonic as well as principal flute in both his high school’s Wind Ensemble and Symphony. Along with flute, Diego enjoys watching Spongebob.
Recently, Diego purchased a new Muramatsu flute and is living his best flute life! With the guidance of his teacher, principal flutist of the Oregon Symphony, Martha Long, Diego is working diligently to prepare for college auditions as he approaches his senior year.
