Sam Cohen is a Computer Science major from Gainesville, Florida. Although he is in his first year in Gestalt, Sam has over fifteen years of musical experience as a violinist, singer, and composer. His past musical experiences include singing in Florida’s All-State Reading Chorus, winning the regional FSMTA Concerto Competition, and writing a choral arrangement to Raymond Carver’s poem “Rain”. Outside of Gestalt, Sam enjoys playing tennis, cooking, and playing violin in services at Hillel. He is excited about the opportunities he has to grow and learn through the group, and the Whole is so thrilled to have him!
