Violinist Amos Fayette has been praised for his touching subtleties, musical nuances, and for an approach to performing reminiscent of violinists of yesteryear. He has served as guest concertmaster for many orchestras and opera companies, including Annapolis Symphony, Tucson Symphony, Illinois Symphony, and Orchestra Iowa, among others. Highlights of his concertmaster career include performance appearances with Michael Tilson Thomas, Ludovic Morlot, James Conlon, and Fabio Luisi. Equally in demand as a soloist, he has performed as a soloist with the New World Symphony, Mid-Atlantic Symphony, Washington Heights Chamber Orchestra, and the Orquesta Filarmonica de Medellin. Now based in Cleveland, Amos performs with many groups throughout Northeast Ohio, including the Firelands Symphony Orchestra, Akron Symphony, Cleveland Opera Theater, and more.
Amos completed his formal education at the Peabody Institute of Music and The Juilliard School, as well as a three-year fellowship with the New World Symphony and one year as a member of The Orchestra Now. His teachers include Shirley Givens, Pamela Frank, Ron Copes, Glenn Dicterow. When he isn’t performing, teaching, or helping a client identify the perfect violin, you may find him exploring the culinary landscape of Cleveland with his family and spending time with his menagerie of animals. His violin was crafted in 2012 by master luthier Edward Maday.
