  • Chloe Fedor

    Violin

    Lauded for her “lovely, plush, seductive tone” and described as “clearly gifted” by the New York Times, violinist Chloe Fedor is sought after throughout the country as a concertmaster, soloist and chamber musician. She appears regularly with The American Classical Orchestra, Apollo’s Fire, Early Music New York, New York Baroque Incorporated, The Sebastians, and Trinity Wall-Street Baroque Orchestra, among others.

    In 2018, Chloe joined the cast of Shakespeare’s Globe on Broadway as the onstage Baroque violinist in Farinelli and the King, starring Sir Mark Rylance and Iestyn Davies. Chloe spends her summers at the Carmel Bach Festival, Oregon Bach Festival and Lakes Area Music Festival, where she leads the Baroque program.

    Chloe was a concerto competition winner at both of her Alma Maters, The Eastman School of Music and The Juilliard School, and was one of 15 Juilliard 2015 graduates to receive the Career Advancement Fellowship.

  • Keiran Campbell
    Keiran Campbell
    Cello

    Keiran Campbell was drawn to the cello after he stumbled across one in his grandmother’s basement and was baffled by its size. Once he turned 8, he began taking lessons—on a much smaller cello—in his native Greensboro, North Carolina. After studying extensively with Leonid Zilper, former solo cellist of the Bolshoi Ballet, he received his Bachelors and Masters at the Juilliard School, working with Darrett Adkins, Timothy Eddy, and Phoebe Carrai. Keiran also spent several springs in Cornwall, England, studying with Steven Isserlis and Ralph Kirshbaum at Prussia Cove. He is now based in Toronto, Ontario, and is principal cello in Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra.

    Keiran has performed with orchestras including The English Concert, NYBI, Philharmonia Baroque, The Boston Early Music Festival Orchestra, Mercury Baroque, and Le Concert des Nations. During the summer, Keiran plays in NYC with Teatro Nuovo, an opera company dedicated to performing bel canto opera on period instruments, and he also performs at Lakes Area Music Festival in Minnesota. Keiran has given lectures and masterclasses at UNC Chapel Hill, RNCM Manchester, Western University, and the National Academy Orchestra of Canada. Performances this season include concerto appearances with Tafelmusik and Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra, a concert of Monteverdi Madrigals with Jordi Savall and Le Concert des Nations in Carnegie Hall, and performances at the BBC Proms and Edinburgh Festival with The English Concert. He can be heard on the newly released recording of Beethoven Symphonies by Le Concert des Nations and Jordi Savall.

    Keiran is also fascinated by instrument making, which he studies with the maker of his cello, Timothy Johnson.

  • Kyle Miller
    Kyle Miller
    Viola

    Violist Kyle Miller made his concerto debut in 2005 with the Reading (Pennsylvania) Symphony Orchestra as ‘the dog’ in P.D.Q. Bach’s Canine Cantata, Wachet Arf! After that watershed performance, Kyle went on to study at the New England Conservatory, the Eastman School of Music, and The Juilliard School.

    A member of ACRONYM, Diderot String Quartet, Four Nations Ensemble, and New York Baroque Incorporated, Kyle also has appeared onstage with A Far Cry, the American Classical Orchestra, Apollo’s Fire, the Clarion Orchestra, the English Concert, Handel and Haydn Society, House of Time, the Knights, Opera Lafayette, Quodlibet Ensemble, the Sebastians, Seraphic Fire, Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra, Teatro Nuovo, TENET, Trinity Baroque Orchestra, and the Washington National Cathedral Baroque Orchestra.

    Kyle performs regularly at the Carmel Bach Festival and the Staunton Music Festival; and as a member of Diderot String Quartet, he has served as a guest artist and coach at Oberlin College’s Baroque Performance Institute. In 2017 and 2018, Kyle wore a wig and frock coat on Broadway, where he performed in a run of Claire van Kampen’s play Farinelli and the King.
