Brian is a member of the Cleveland Orchestra. He has appeared as soloist with over 30 orchestras across the United States, as well as in many chamber music collaborations with different ensembles. Having a special interest in modern music has led him to premier works of little known to well-known composers such as Donald Erb and John Adams. He also leads many ensembles as conductor, including the precollege division at the Cleveland Institute of Music, and is the artistic director of the Lev Aronson Legacy Festival in Dallas, which promotes the teaching and playing traditions of one of the most influential cello pedagogues and Holocaust survivor, Lev Aronson.
