He received his bachelor of music degree from Northwestern University in 2007, where he studied with Barbara Butler, Charles Geyer and Christopher Martin. While a student at Northwestern, Bensdorf spent two years performing with the Civic Orchestra of Chicago, the training orchestra for the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, and also performed with the New World Symphony and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra’s contemporary ensemble, MusicNOW. In May 2005, Bensdorf was selected to perform at The Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts representing Northwestern University as part of “The Conservatory Project” recital series.
