The New School’s Mannes School of Music in New York has this week announced the appointment of Israeli-American cellist Matt Haimovitz as its new Artist-In-Residence - effective from September 2018.
Matt, who will serve as the conservatory's first ever John Cage Fellow, will take part in coaching ensembles, teaching private lessons - plus giving a number of recitals and faculty collaborations.
“We are all thrilled to have Matt Haimovitz join this community and feel that Matt and his artistic worldview are a perfect fit with the vision for Mannes and the College of Performing Arts,” Dean Richard Kessler has said.
“I am honored to expand my artistic community and join vibrant colleagues at The New School in nurturing, mentoring, and inspiring the next generation of artists in an ever-challenging cultural environment,“ Matt has said.
A graduate of the Juilliard School and Harvard College, where he studied with Leonard Rose, Matt has served on faculty at McGill University’s Schulich School of Music in Montreal since 2004.
