We are delighted to host Andi Hemmenway as an Artmonk-in-Residence this summer!
Andi Hemmenway is a musician of diverse interests and experience. She has played everything from J. S. Bach to Hank Williams and has performed in venues from Carnegie Hall to the ancient sidewalks of Athens, Greece. She began music at an early age, singing, playing piano, flute, and violin until choosing to focus on the viola. She holds her Bachelors in viola performance from Rice University and her Masters Degree from The Juilliard School. After graduating Juillard, she was awarded a Fulbright-Hayes Grant to live in Greece for a year, studying traditional Greek music. Her musical explorations have taken her from the western classical tradition, to a more eastern approach, to song writing, improvisation, and the release of her debut CD. She currently lives in the Philadelphia area and is a freelancer and Teaching Artist with the organization “Play On, Philly!” an out-of-school music program designed to create social consciousness and provide opportunities for personal development through music. http://andihemmenway.com/
