An active and ardent performer of both ‘classical’ music and traditional style Celtic music, violinist-composer David Matthew Brown merges passion with ingenuity. He has performed as a soloist with the Csik Chamber Orchestra of Csíkszereda, Romania – with which he was also guest concertmaster, the Newark and University of Delaware Symphony Orchestras as the winner of each respective concerto competition, and the West Chester University Chamber Orchestra. His compositions have been performed, commissioned and/or recorded by The New Russia State Symphony Orchestra, The International Opera Theater, Philadelphia’s Network for New Music, NYC’s LINK Ensemble, The 6ixwire Project, and the Csik Chamber Orchestra. David’s teachers include Charles Ponall, Sylvia Ahramjian, and Xiang Gao.
Additionally, David is a conductor, tuba player, mandolinist, and has composed over fifty Celtic jigs, reels, hornpipes, and other dance forms. He is the instrumental music director at the Merion Mercy Academy high school, and a personal trainer at The Sporting Club Main Line, both on Philadelphia’s Main Line. His favorite composer is Joaquín Rodrigo.
