Jacob Efthimiou is a cellist from Delhi, New York. He grew up playing music with his brother and two sisters. They would play for Christmas and other festivities throughout the year. He just finished his first year at Oberlin College in Ohio.
Jacob is a runner. He kept up his hobby for the first few weeks in Aspen but had trouble fitting it into his schedule, and breathing in the thin air. Jacob says that he has learned a bunch so far at the school, but has had trouble applying the new information just because his musical mind is still expanding.
