Hoopes' Dreams, CIM alumnus interview in August issue of Strings

July 2, 2014

Cleveland Institute of Music Preparatory division alumnus Chad Hoopes has been making a name for himself for close to a decade–quite an accomplishment for a 19-year-old. Recently, he released his first studio recording of concertos by Mendelssohn and John Adams to rave reviews, and now he’s the cover story of Strings magazine.
