Aren VanHouzen Shares Advice with CAA Students

Aren VanHouzen speaking to CAA students

Working artist and Quad City Symphony member, Aren VanHouzen, visited seventh- and eighth-grade Creative Arts Academy (CAA) students. He presented on the trumpet and gave fantastic practical advice on how to be a working artist, advising students to “Keep your schedule busy. As an artist, it’s up to you to book your next gig or show; no one else will do it for you. It’s because of this that I’m able to be a working musician and I’m grateful for that every day.”
