Andrew Licht – Violin

Andrew Licht is entering his second year as a member of the Fayetteville Symphony Orchestra, and is very excited for the upcoming season. Andy is a native of Massachusetts, and currently holds a Bachelors of Music degree in Violin Performance from the University of Massachusetts in Amherst, and a Masters degree in Violin Performance from the University of North Carolina School of the Arts (UNCSA). At the University of Massachusetts, Andy studied with Elizabeth Chang, and received regular chamber music coachings with Astrid Schween (the new cellist of the Julliard String Quartet), Gilles Vonsattel (pianist), and Kathryn Lockwood of the Lark Quartet.  The past couple of years, while pursuing his Masters of Music at UNCSA, Andy was a student of Kevin Lawrence, and received regular chamber music coachings from pianists Dmitri Shteinberg and Eric Larsen.

Starting this fall, Andy will be apart of the Winston Salem Academy of Music and Arts through the Winston Salem Symphony, serving as an assistant teacher to their youth violin program. They will be serving at many Elementary schools around Winston Salem. Andy will also be serving a second year as an ArtistCorps member. This program is a part of Americorps, and is involved with bringing arts to kids in need. Andy will use his service to teach strings and to assist orchestral programs in the public schools of Winston Salem. During the summers, Andy has been a participant at a number of different festivals including the Green Mountain Chamber Music Festival in Vermont, and the National Music Festival in Maryland.
