Violist GILLIAN GALLAGHER is making a considerable name for herself as a multi-dimensional artist and chamber musician, having collaborated with such eminent performers as violinist Arnold Steinhardt, pianists Claude Frank and Jerome Lowenthal, the Tokyo String Quartet, and violinist and composer Mark O'Connor. Gallagher tours the U.S. extensively as violist of both O'Connor's acclaimed Appalachia Waltz Trio, with whom she has performed since 2007, and the O'Connor Quartet. Gallagher has given recitals in Carnegie Hall's Weill Recital Hall, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the Kennedy Center's Terrace Theater with international festival engagements at the Pacific Music Festival in Sapporo, Japan; the Festival dei Due Mondi in Spoleto, Italy; the Banff Centre in Alberta, Canada; and California's Music@Menlo. A devoted promoter of new and contemporary music, Gallagher has premiered over a dozen new works at the Museum of Modern Art's Summergarden Series in New York. She is a dedicated and enthusiastic teacher and has been on viola faculty at the Boston University Tanglewood Institute, Mark O'Connor's String Camps, and the Port Townsend Chamber Music Festival. Originally from Saratoga Springs, NY, Gallagher received both her B.M. and M.M. degrees from the Juilliard School, where she studied with Heidi Castleman, Misha Amory, and Hsin-Yun Huang.
