Carroll Concert Series


Baroque 'n Hearts
Yoshiaki Horiguchi, double bassist, is performing baroque and romantic works by J.S. Bach, Henry Eccles, Jules Massenet, Giovanni Bottesini and Francois Rabbath.

Horiguchi has been acclaimed by the Baltimore Sun for his ability to put on a “dazzling display of dexterity and panache,” and featured by the Examiner in a “Must Watch Video.”

Graduating from University of Maryland Baltimore County (UMBC) as a Linehan Artist Scholar, he became the first double bassist to ever win the UMBC concerto competition.

He currently freelances in the Washington, DC/Baltimore area and is active in the Classical Revolution - Baltimore scene. Most recently, he performed with the National Music Festival Symphony Orchestra where he recorded for the Naxos label. He proudly hails from the studios of Ed Malaga, Jeff Koczela, Laura Ruas and Paul DeNola.

In addition to being an active performer, Horiguchi is a highly sought-after educator and string specialist. Having founded the double bass program at the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra’s ORCHkids program; he joined the Carroll's faculty; built up a studio of violin, viola, cello and double bass students; and joined the Peabody Bass Works faculty. His teaching experience is vast and has depth.

Horiguchi's work with the BSO ORCHkids program has promoted him to department chair of low strings and landed him and his students on the front page of the Baltimore Times. He also has worked with Baltimore Symphony Youth Orchestras, East Coast El Sistema Seminario, AP/IB classes in the Maryland public school system, and more. Most recently, Horiguchi conducted one of his symphonic arrangements at Baltimore's Artscape Festival. His previous conducting endeavors have included the UMBC Symphony orchestra, BSO ORCHkids ensembles, Peabody Bass Works and the National Music Festival Symphony Orchestra.
