Meet Christian Van Deven

Christian Van Deven is a freelance musician who joined the Hampton Roads Philharmonic after learning about us from friends. He has studied trumpet since age 11 and obtained his Music Education degree from Old Dominion University. A horn and trumpet player, he discovered our orchestra after he was asked to play third trumpet in a concert and played the remainder of the season before taking on the permanent horn position! He says he likes performing all kinds of music! Because our orchestra plays a wide variety of music, performing with us is exciting!
