Interview with Tissa Khosla, Washington, District of Columbia

Originally from Mumbai, India, Tissa began his musical and professional life in Tallahassee, Florida as a student. Gravitating to the baritone saxophone from a young age, he remains in pursuit of its deep and moving sound, which he believes coincides with his own voice and philosophy of music. Khosla can be heard alongside the Modern Jazz Generation on a recording entitled United We Play, featuring the American Symphony Orchestra. Along with a thorough practice schedule and teaching lessons, he is the Digital Developer at the D.C. nonprofit Casey Trees, whose mission is to restore, enhance, and protect the tree canopy of Washington, DC. This position has given him the opportunity to write code, work on music technology, and develop accessible web design.
