Lars Ortiz (he/him) began his career as an English teacher in Denver Public Schools. He later became principal cellist of the Civic Orchestra of Minneapolis as well as a founding member of Lux String Quartet, where he worked with both Minnesota Public Radio and Schubert Club to promote music education. Having performed in both concert halls and coffee shops, he is most happy in his studio teaching budding cellists of all ages.
