Andrew Kohn’s work often explores areas either long-lost or newly-discovered. This is reflected in his concert repertoire, recordings, and many publications. He studied with Theron McClure, Barry Green, Eldon Obrecht, and Eugene Levinson, and teaches bass and music theory at West Virginia University. He also composes, especially vocal and chamber pieces.
