also made a conscious effort to support and provide an outlet for the local arts community.Eklektikos was born.
"I always wanted to expand classical music into a more generally-heard forum ...I was also trying to get the classical people to lighten up and stop thinking that classical music is the only kind of music in the world and start listening to other things," he
says."I think there is room for all of it and all of it together, not in separate pockets."John's
now well-known for his
