Violist James Dunham has shown his versatility in every area of performance. As a member of the Cleveland Quartet at the time of their 1996 Grammy Award, and founding violist of the Naumburg Award–winning Sequoia String Quartet, his qualifications to head the Master of Music in String Quartet program at the Shepherd School of Music are well established. As a soloist, Dunham has premiered and recorded works by Libby Larsen. And during his time in Boston as chair of New England Conservatory's strings department, he was frequently heard as a substitute player with the Boston Symphony Orchestra.

As Dunham works with NEC students in today's masterclass, we'll witness his engaging qualities as a teacher, which led to him being awarded the Louis and Adrienne Krasner Teaching Excellence Award during his time here.
