"the thing that i dug so much about hearing you play is that there is like a certain touch when you hit the string right and the bass kind of says...'bowwwww'. and like if you hit it too hard it doesn't happen and if you hit it too soft it doesn't happen, and last night it kept sounding like 'bowwwwwww' and i was like hell yeah that sounds ****ing good' 

-Sam Damask

"I'd never heard such a bizarre cello solo and been so satisfied in my life!"

In Short cont...
An alumna of the DSO’s Young Strings program, Brianne Sargent began playing cello at age 12. Because of Young Strings she was able to solo with the Dallas Symphony in the Spring of 2005 for their Family Concert series to a sold-out audience. After studying at Booker T. Washington HSPVA, she completed her high school education at Interlochen Academy in Michigan. She graduated in 2010 from the Baldwin-Wallace Music Conservatory where she studied with Regina Mushabac, teaching apprentice to the legendary Janos Starker. Brianne Sargent was a guest artist for the 2017 Soluna Festival and the Sound Designer for the Indigenous Sci-Fi play "Where Earth Meets the Sky". Brianne also had a featured artist spotlight in Art and Seek in May of 2017, an article in Voyage Dallas Magazine in July 2018 and a spotlight in a Dallas Observer article in June of 2020 on Dallas Musicians sharing their stories of racism.
