Valdir Claudino

I am from Belo Horizonte – Brazil, where I am the principal bass player of the UFMG Symphony Orchestra and Sesiminas – Musicoop String Orchestra. I earned my Masters degree from The University of Iowa with Dr. Diana Gannett, and decided to pursue my DMA degree in double bass with Professor Volkan Orhon, as well as Masters degree in Conducting with Dr. William La Rue Jones here at The University of Iowa.

As a teacher, I have been giving master classes in Campos dos Goitacazes – Rio de Janeiro at the FEMUSICA Festival since 2000.
