A Conversation with Dennis Contreras, Union Symphony
By David Brandt
Dennis Contreras, bassist, discusses the importance of music in his life and in the community.
“I’m so fortunate to be part of the jazz component of that [Union Symphony], and have the support of people who are interested in supporting the arts in this community, because I think they are needed in this community, they’re needed in all communities. Especially when people are so prone to be bitter towards each other, it’s really the arts and language and things like that, that can really help bring us together” — Dennis Contreras
