Hutchison loves working with the students of the Cochise County Youth Orchestra.  “Playing in a Youth Symphony was the highlight of my week while growing up.  It challenged and broadened me musically, intellectually and socially.  I am the musician I am today because of my experiences playing in the Minnesota Youth Symphony.  I enjoy following in my director’s footsteps and bringing this experience to a whole new generation of young musicians.”
