Greg began his studies of the cello at the age of eleven as he started taking lessons with Jill Placeway. He quickly discovered his passion for music and cello performance and studied privately throughout high school with the intent of making it his life’s pursuit.
In the fall of 2012, Greg attended the Sunderman Conservatory at Gettysburg College, studying with Daniel Levitov, director of the preparatory division at Peabody Institute. During his four years at Gettysburg, he participated in selective groups such as the Gettysburg College Orchestra, Metta Ensemble, Sunderman Strings, and various string quartets and new music ensembles.
Greg currently participates regularly in ensembles across south-central PA including both collegiate and professional orchestras such as the Hershey Symphony and Allegro Chamber Orchestra.
He has had the opportunity to study under John Koen, a member of the Philadelphia Orchestra, and Sara Male, a prominent cellist within the central PA area. Greg is always looking for ways to support the contemporary music scene as well as educate others in the art of the cello and orchestral strings. Along with teaching privately, he is excited to be collaborating with the State Street Academy, Perfect 5th Music & Arts Center, Vivace Live, and is serving as adjunct faculty at the Elizabethtown College Preparatory Division.
