I grew up in a tiny town called Wilton, CT, where SUV's have run rampant. With the help of an extremely supportive family I decided to study viola and practice my way into the Eastman School of Music. I spent four years at Eastman studying with John Graham and other great artists including the Ying Quartet. I graduated with a Bachelor's in Music for Viola Performance and now I am taking on the Big Apple to put my skills to the test.
I've created a composite career for myself including performing, teaching, composing, and improvising, in short freelancing, in New York, Connecticut, and New Jersey. I've performed in some of the coolest places including Carnegie Hall, Jorgensen Center, Seiji Ozawa Hall, Kilbourn Hall, Eastman Theatre, and Glimmerglass Opera House.
Now I enjoy teaching private lessons, coaching chamber music with the Norwalk Youth Symphony and playing in Allentown and Norwalk Symphonies.
In my free time I study improvisation in jazz, rock, and bluegrass and continue to sharpen my viola chops. Composing music has also become a high priority in my musical studies. I love writing and performing and hope to share my music with as many people as I can. For audio and info visit my website at www.nickrevel.com.
