Drew Irvin

Andrew Irvin started his violin studies in his hometown of Columbia, Missouri with Kathy
Rollings. This childhood interest has lead to a life of concerts throughout North America and
abroad. After study with Kevin Lawrence at the University of North Carolina, School of the
Arts, Catherine Tait at Eastman and Katy McLin at Arizona State University he moved to
Arkansas where he has been Concertmaster of the Arkansas Symphony Orchestra (ASO). His
recent solo engagements include Mozart’s Sinfonia Concertante on the ASO’s webcast. His
solo repertoire ranges from Bach, Vivaldi, Mozart, and Haydn. It includes Tchaikovsky,
Dvorak and Korngold and Vaughn-Williams and the world premier of Michael Fines’ Double
Violin Concerto.
Andrew’s chamber music highlights include performances with fellow artist including
violinist Augustin Hadelich, the Ying Quartet, the Audubon Quartet, bassist Milton Masciadri
and composer Steve Mackey. Most exciting for him is the opportunity to make music with
the excellent artists of the Arkansas Symphony which he considers his artistic home. He
has numerous chamber ensembles playing everything from world premiers to the favorites of
the chamber music repertoire. Recordings of Andrew include one as a member of the Camino
Trio with clarinetist, Kelly Johnson, and pianist Gail Novak. The CD “Child’s Play” is out
on the Potenza label. He can also be heard in recording on the Naxos label with the Hot
Springs Music Festival.
Mr Irvin was the progenitor of the Arkansas Symphony Orchestra’s Bedtime with Bach
series. An online concert series originating in March of 2020 and know for receiving national
press and reaching hundreds of thousands of people around the globe. The creation of this
series led to his being awarded “Top 30 Professionals Worldwide 2021” by Musical
Mr. Irvin works with a select private studio and his students have attended music schools and
universities across the US, many with music scholarship. Some of the schools include Ithaca,
SUNY-Fredonia, Baylor, Yale, Smith College, Arizona State University, Florida State
University, St Olaf, Texas Tech, Interlochen Academy, Johns Hopkins, University of
Michigan, Calvin College and many of Arkansas’ fine music schools. He plays a 1765
