DAVID BOWLIN, VIOLIN
Violinist DAVID BOWLIN’s performances of a wide-ranging repertoire both old and new have brought him across North America, Europe and Asia. Bowlin is a founding member of the acclaimed International Contemporary Ensemble, member of the Oberlin Trio and a former member of the Naumburg award-winning Da Capo Chamber Players. Recordings include solo and chamber music by over a dozen composers for the Bridge, Naxos, New Focus, Arsis and Mode labels.

Bowlin is currently on the violin faculty of the Oberlin Conservatory of Music and artistic director of Chamber Music Quad Cities, which brings chamber music performances to the midwestern region where he is a native. He is a graduate of the Oberlin Conservatory, The Juilliard School and Stony Brook University. He will be on campus the last three weeks of the season.
