Violinist Amos Fayette began his studies with his mother at the age of 2. After only a short time, he continued lessons with Jo Shifter. Subsequent teachers included Brian Lewis, Lazar
Gosman, Naoko Tanaka, Shirley Givens, and Pamela Frank. He is a graduate of the Juilliard School's Pre-College Division as well as the Peabody Institute in Baltimore, MD. Amos is currently enrolled at the Manhattan School of Music Orchestra Performance Program, where he studies with Glenn Dicterow and Lisa Kim.
A versatile musician, Amos has had success in chamber music, solo and orchestral performance. He has played concerti and solo works with the Sound Symphony, Kammergild Chamber Orchestra, Peabody Camerata, Mid-Atlantic Symphony Orchestra, as well as the Island Senior Symphony. He has also worked as a lab
soloist to Maestro Gustav Meier's conducting seminar. He is a former member of the Delorean String Quartet, which performed concerts all over the Mid-Atlantic Region. The Delorean String Quartet was also a semifinalist at the 2005 Fischoff National Chamber Music Competition, the youngest group overall with an
average age of 20.
As an orchestral musician, Amos has performed with some of the best musicians of that arena. In January of 2009, Amos performed side by side with Glenn Dicterow and Lisa Kim in a special performance by the Manhattan School of Music OP students. He has been guest concertmaster of the Annapolis Symphony Orchestra, Mid-Atlantic Symphony Orchestra, and the Tucson Symphony Orchestra. He has also performed in various leadership roles in the Baltimore Chamber Orchestra.
For the 2009/2010 season, Amos will be performing solo recitals in Toronto, New York City, New Jersey, and Baltimore. He also plans to follow his dream of becoming a professional full-time concertmaster. Amos plays on a violin made by Modenese maker Gian Carlo Guicciardi , dated 2000. This violin has been
generously loaned to him by the Sbarro Family of Long Island, NY.
