Robert Cohen

On Lake Effect's monthly On That Note segment, award-winning recording artist, conductor, artistic director and cellist Robert Cohen has discussed what goes into creating and maintaining a high level career in classical music. He's discussed choosing a cello and a bow, the challenges in transporting such a valuable instrument internationally, and what kind of preparation goes into each performance.

And while all of those things are personal to each musician, today Cohen talks about the more personal cost a performing career at this level can exact. Cohen says that following his passion while also having a healthy and happy home life requires a continual balancing act.
