A Los Angeles native, Christopher Hernacki is an international award winning freelance musician and has served as the bass trombonist of the Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra, Symphony Silicon Valley, the Phoenix Symphony, and the San Antonio Symphony. He has also performed extensively with the San Francisco Symphony, the Finnish National Opera and Ballet, and the Detroit Symphony Orchestra among many others. A huge nerd of music, video games, and video game music, Mr. Hernacki writes, performs, and records various arrangements of classic game music, which are subsequently dumped onto his very modest YouTube channel: (https://www.youtube.com/c/ChristoFLUR). An advocate for the arts, Mr. Hernacki strives to be an agent of change in helping performers realize their utmost potential, connecting audiences of musicians and non-musicians alike, and elevating the music field as a whole so that it will always have a place to thrive for generations to come. Mr. Hernacki currently serves on the faculty of Idyllwild Arts’ Summer Music Program and as a Lecturer in Music at Eastern Michigan University.
