Today, we launch a new series on Lake Effect, called “On That Note.”

It’s a monthly conversation about music with internationally renowned cellist Robert Cohen. He’s been the cellist for the Milwaukee-based Fine Arts Quartet for almost three years, but as we’ll soon hear, music has been a part of his life since he was small.

Cohen will join us for some wide-ranging conversations about the unique realities of being a professional musician – from traveling with a cello to the realities of a recording studio to what it’s like to step out on the concert stage.

Today, though, we get his back story – he explains to Bonnie North how the cello became part of his life.
