Robert Mealy is one of America’s most prominent Baroque violinists. The New York Times remarked that “Mr. Mealy seems to foster excellence wherever he goes, whether as director of the Boston Early Music Festival Orchestra, concertmaster of the Trinity Baroque Orchestra in New York, or at The Juilliard School, as director of the historical performance program.” He has recorded and toured with many distinguished ensembles both here and in Europe, and served as concertmaster for Masaaki Suzuki, Nicholas McGegan, Helmuth Rilling, Paul Agnew, and William Christie, among others. He has given solo recitals at Carnegie Hall and the Smithsonian, and appears with the 17c ensemble Quicksilver on series across America. In 2004, he received EMA’s Binkley Award for outstanding teaching and scholarship. He still likes to practice.
