Colby Heimburger

Double Bass

Parkway Central High School

Colby Heimburger is a 14-year old freshman at Parkway Central High School. This is her first season with the St. Louis Symphony Youth Orchestra. Colby began playing the bass in fifth grade, and started studying privately with Jeremy Pfeffer the following year. She also studied piano for five years prior to starting bass. For the past two years, Colby has played with the St. Charles County Youth Orchestra where she served as principal bassist. She was also the All-Suburban principal bassist the past two years, and has experience playing in jazz band the past three years.

Outside of SLSYO, you can find Colby running cross country (slowly), eating baked potatoes and coveting things from Lululemon.

Colby would like to thank her parents and her private teacher for encouraging and supporting her in her music career, as well as Joseph Bradley, Clay McKinney, Alicia Bont, and Shane Williams.
