Raúl Gómez chats with Maggie Carter, a 14-year-old double bassist who loves her instrument passionately, as well as making music with her friends at the Portland Youth Philharmonic, where she is a Principal Bass.

Maggie was the winner of the 2019 International Society of Bassists 14-and-under solo competition, the winner of the 2020 Oregon Mozart Players Young Soloist Competition in the Junior Division, and the runner-up of the 2020 PYP Concerto Competition.

Outside of her musical life, Maggie enjoys baking, reading, camping, and writing calligraphy.  She also loves to hang out with her three younger siblings and to write letters to friends all over the country.
