Lowry Yankwich

Lowry is a classically-trained pianist, podcast producer, and law student. He came to podcasting because he loves to tell stories, and finds audio uniquely suited to exploring music and its links to other aspects of culture. He holds an Associate Degree in Piano Performance from the Royal Conservatory of Music, studied history at Stanford University, and is now in his final year at Harvard Law School, where he focuses on environmental policy and music law. In 30 Bach, his first podcast, Lowry created a composite version of J.S. Bach’s “Goldberg Variations,” through interviews with and performances by musicians across the world.
