An inspiring night featuring the artistry of Sheila Reinhold, violin, and
Matthew Dane, viola d’amore in a tapas of musical selections
at private home in Old Town.
Violinist, Founder and Music Director of Intimate Voices
Sheila Reinhold made her first debut as a soloist when she was just 9. After playing in front of an orchestra at the 92nd Street Y at that tender age, she spent part of her teens studying with the world-famous violinist and conductor Jascha Heifetz. Ms. Reinhold said when she was in high school, she decided to devote herself to the violin. Since then, she has put on performances from challenging solos at the Lincoln Center to back-up melodies for Tony Bennett and other stars, all while remaining a dedicated teacher for students of her own.
The latest feather in her cap came from the Bronx Council on the Arts, which earlier this year gave her a Bronx Recognizes Its Own (or BRIO) award for her part in a rollicking Haydn quartet. Known for her teaching at The Juilliard School Pre-College program, she will work with Chamber Music Academy students in an Educational Residency on Wednesday, December 4th.

With the Boulder Piano Quartet and Jon Manasse he recorded quintets of Lowell Liebermann for Koch Records. Matt has appeared as soloist with the Oklahoma City Philharmonic and the St. Martin’s Chamber Choir among others; his chamber performances have been broadcast on NPR’s Performance Today and BBC’s Channel 3.
