Joshua Lee, viola da gamba

Joshua Lee, viola da gamba & baroque bass, leads an eclectic musical life performing on viols, violoncello, double bass, and violone with some of the world’s leaders in early music. Initially trained as a violinist, he began his studies in historical performance practice at the Peabody Conservatory of Music where he was a student of Ann Marie Morgan, Mark Cudek, and Webb Wiggins. As a collaborative artist he is a member of New Trinity Baroque, a founding member of the ensembles Concerto Incognito and Marley’s Head, and has performed with the Washington Bach Consort, Olde Friends, Arcadia Players, and Hesperus. Aside from performing early music, Mr. Lee has appeared with such popular artists as The Cure, 10,000 Maniacs, REM, and great late Tammy Wynette in “unplugged” performances across the US. Also a dedicated educator, Mr. Lee has led educational residencies in inner city schools in Washington, D.C., Baltimore, Los Angeles, and San Francisco, as well as annual residencies in rural Kentucky. Now a resident of Atlanta, Joshua is on the faculty of the New School of Music where he teaches violin, ‘cello, and double bass. Recently cited by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution for his “finely tuned” and “stylish playing,” Joshua’s performances have been broadcast on National Public Radio’s “Performance Today” and “Harmonia.”
