Bassist Kevin Gobetz, having recently left the New World Symphony, spent the 2017-18 season on contract with the Los Angeles Philharmonic. He has performed with several prominent figures in the Los Angeles area, including the Grammy® Award-winning acapella group Pentatonix, reggae artist Damian Marley and Kevin Olusola on his Adele Medley for solo cello and strings.

A native of Long Island, New York, Kevin Gobetz studied music with Nicholas Walker at Ithaca College, where he earned his bachelor’s degree. He holds a master’s degree and a graduate certificate at the University of Southern California, where he worked closely with David Allen Moore and members of the LA Phil. Mr. Gobetz is very excited to share in the experience of the San Diego Symphony this season, both with his colleagues and audiences.
