David Creswell, Viola
David Creswell has been an integral part of the music scene of New York City for 20+ years, spanning nearly every musical style and setting: classical, contemporary, recording studio, stage, solo performance, opera and orchestra, including the NY Philharmonic. He has been part of over 30 Broadway productions, recently playing both viola and violin for the bluegrass musical Bright Star by Steve Martin and Edie Brickell, and has been part of numerous film soundtracks and television events. A dedicated music educator, David co-developed a lecture series on the elegant intersections of tuning and mathematics, maintains an active teaching studio, and collaborates on pedagogical projects for collegiate students at the Juilliard School. He creates new arrangements of established chamber works, expanding and diversifying the viola repertoire to match the technical caliber of today’s talented young violists.
