Cleveland Institute of Music Appoints Three New String Staff Members

The appointments are part of a large intake of 21 new teachers across CIM's different departments


Three new teachers of strings are among an enormous 21-person staff intake across the Conservatory, Preparatory, and Joint Music Program at the Cleveland Institute of Music (CIM), in Cleveland, Ohio.

They are Maximilian Dimoff (Principal Bass of the Cleveland Orchestra), Nathaniel Hoyt (cello), and Cristina Micci-Barreca (viola).

Dimoff is returning to CIM after a five-year break, having served as the head of the school's double bass department between 2000 and 2017. He also started his position in the Cleveland Orchestra in 1997 and has played in the Grant Park Symphony Orchestra and the Seattle Symphony.

Cellist Nathaniel Hoyt received his Master's degree from CIM, and since that time has won the 2019 Eastern Music Festival Concerto Competition and the 2020 Misbin Chamber Music Competition. He performs regularly with his sister, pianist Sadie Hoyt, and helped form the Amaiera Quartet.

Violist Cristina Micci-Barreca is also a graduate of CIM, having received her undergraduate degree there. She has performed as principal viola in several ensembles, including the Houston Youth Symphony and the TMEA All-State Orchestras. She was named a Houston Young Artist and Texas Music Scholar and has taken part in music festivals at Bowdoin, the Chautauqua Institution, and the Domaine Forget Academy.
