There’s a new CD out this week that is sure to capture the interest of classical music lovers, especially those from the San Joaquin Valley. It’s the debut recording of  24 year-old violinist  and Valley native Eric Gratz. A decade ago Gratz was performing with the Youth Orchestras of Fresno.

Today he is the Concertmaster of the San Antonio Symphony, and an in-demand soloist, performing worldwide. He joined us on Valley Edition to talk about his new recording and his burgeoning career. Listen to the interview above.
