Ever since a young age Andraž has been fascinated by orchestral Music. If he were to choose between playing an instrument and speaking as means of communication, he would probably always choose music!

Prior to that, between 2019 and 2021, he was the very first clarinetist to be a part of the newly formed Academy of the Vienna Philharmonic.
He played under the baton of Conductors such as: Kiril Petrenko, John Williams, Christian Thielemann, Zubin Mehta, Francois-Xavier Roth, Gustavo Dudamel… In world famous concert houses, among them: Wiener Musikverein, Philharmonie Berlin, Carnegie Hall, Boston Symphony Hall, Konzerthaus Berlin,…
Andraz performed as a soloist with the Norddeutschen Philharmonie Rostock at the Mecklenburg-Vorprommen Festival, as well as with Slovenian Radio symphonic Orchestra.
At the time of his Academy position with the Vienna Philharmonic he was pronounced the winner of the “Edmund Horwath” Prize as a representative of the Woodwinds section.
