French hornist and College of the Arts junior Santiago Valenzuela wants to show you how classical music can be just as accessible as the songs on your favorite Spotify playlist. Born to immigrant parents and growing up gay in an evangelical household, he had his dreams dashed and questioned time and time again. But the power of music always revived and uplifted him, and he wants to bring classical music’s power to the masses.
