Pablo Donatti has enjoyed being a member of the CCSO since the 1988-89 season. Originally from Argentina, where he started studying the violin at 13 (almost half a century ago!), he joined his first professional orchestra at 18, performing also in several chamber ensembles before moving to Mexico as a member of the State of Mexico Symphony. He continued his studies in the Houston, working as a freelance musician, and since 1993 simultaneously enjoying a second career as a conference interpreter. He has performed numerous violin-piano recitals with pianist Cathy Labuda. He loves chamber music and has attended the 2018 and 2019 Manhattan String Quartets workshops, and for the last six years has worked intensively with his Opus4 quartet and trio, performing over thirty concerts in the Houston area. Being from Argentina, tango music has also been a part of his musical activities. He has worked for the last fifteen years with the Casarsa Tango Ensemble, performing in Houston, San Antonio, New Orleans, and even right here in the PAC of Texas A&M University.
He lives in Houston with his wife Diana, after raising three wonderful children, all fortunately living in the Houston area!
