ABOUT THE ARTISTS

Aundrey Mitchell, violist, has performed throughout the United States and abroad as an orchestra player, chamber musician, and soloist with appearances at Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, and the Kimmel Center. As soloist, she has performed with the New Brunswick Chamber Orchestra, the Harlem Symphony Orchestra, and the Antara Ensemble. An avid chamber musician, she has participated in numerous festivals including the Taos School of Music and the L'Ecole d'Arts Americaines at Fontainebleau, France. Ms. Mitchell received BM and MM degrees from the Cleveland Institute of Music with Lucien Joel, post graduate studies at the Manhattan School of Music with Karen Ritscher, and earned her Doctorate of Musical Arts from Rutgers University studying with Michael Tree. In addition to performing, Ms. Mitchell is a dedicated teacher and active clinician. She teaches at the Bloomingdale School of Music, the Kinhaven Music School in Vermont and at the City University of New York.

Pianist Tim McCullough was born in Cardiff, Wales into a musical family. He considers himself fortunate to have a father who is a very accomplished pianist. By the time he was about six weeks old he had already heard a whole host of beautiful piano literature. As a result he grew up swimming in the sound of piano music. At age eight his family relocated to Dallas, Texas and he later moved to New York to pursue graduate piano studies. He received his B.M from the University of Texas and his M.M from Manhattan School of Music. Although he can't choose one favorite composer, he particularly enjoys playing the music of Bach, Beethoven, Chopin, Debussy, and Messiaen.
