Our Musicians

Hernan Constantino
Violin, Principal
There are a few individuals who have such a strong impact on the Orchestra that it is unimaginable to think of one without the other. Hernan’s ability to inspire and his incredible work ethic make him one of those few. Hernan was born and raised in the Philippines where his father’s love for the violin prompted him to begin studying the instrument. Hernan initially established himself in Oregon where he was first violinist of the Portland Opera Orchestra and the West Coast Chamber Orchestra, a substitute with the Oregon Symphony, and a professor at Oregon State University. Hernan moved to San Diego where the weather is better suited for his love of golf. Hernan performs with the San Diego Symphony, and is an active teacher and faculty member at San Diego State University where he continues to inspire young people.
