Kazem Abdullah was growing up in the Midwest when he chose not one, but two instruments, piano and clarinet. He studied at the Cincinnati Conservatory of Music, and eventually landed a fellowship with Michael Tilson Thomas and the New World Symphony in Miami. That's when Michael Tilson Thomas challenged him, encouraging him to put down his clarinet and pick up the baton.
