Chase Spruill, Violin

Charles “Chase” Spruill, IV was artist-in-residence at Sacramento State University before accepting a permanent residency with the Providence String Quartet at Community MusicWorks in Providence, Rhode Island – which the New Yorker calls “…a revolutionary organization in which the distinction between performing and teaching disappears.” As an advocate for education and contemporary chamber music, Spruill has collaborated with Kronos Quartet, composers Steven Mackey and Michael Nyman, and currently tours as a duo with pianist/director of the Philip Glass Ensemble Michael Riesman. He plays a 1998 Curtin violin.
