On Deck with Maggie Carter
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.
