Nevin Dawson- The Versatile Viola

Nevin Dawson with Philip Dutton, Rebekah Hock, Tom Anthony and Ray Anthony

Nevin Dawson will showcase the many facets of the viola, the oft-forgotten middle child between the violin and cello. Moving seamlessly from classical to Celtic to jazz to rock, he will share how he grew from a third grader playing Twinkle Twinkle into a cross-genre professional. Watch as he builds a one-man backup band on the spot with a looper pedal, and look for some vocal numbers as well. He will be joined by Philip Dutton on keyboards, Rebekah Hock on oboe and sax, Tom Anthony on bass and guitar, and Ray Anthony on drums. Nevin studied viola at Penn State University while earning a degree in Forestry and has played with many symphonies and chamber ensembles, including Pennsylvania Centre Orchestra, Canberra Symphony Orchestra, and the Mid-Atlantic Symphony Orchestra. He currently teaches violin, viola, and cello at Music Life in Chestertown and plays with Shore Strings, the Dover Symphony, The Pam Ortiz Band, Harp & Soul, and is featured on seven recordings. He performs solo shows, including introductory programs for the National Music Festival's Fiddlesticks grade school education program. He also sings with the Chester River Chorale/Chester Chamber Singers. He was a member of the Red Devil Moon ensemble, a new musical selected to participate in the 2017 NYC Fringe Festival. He lives in Chestertown with his wife and son, and serves as Sustainable Agriculture Coordinator with University of Maryland Extension during the day.
