LWB LIVESTREAM: Program to be announced
CHARLES MAY, violinist, began studying traditional classical violin at age eight while growing up among a family of folk musicians. His rich and vibrant musical background led to a fusion of classical and folk music as he performs both as a solo strolling violinist and an orchestral musician. Charles found a calling in composing and recording his own music, and to date has composed 200 original fiddle tunes and songs, published two volumes of these works and recorded four CDs. He loves sharing his music with audiences around the Pittsburgh area and continues to explore the styles of Scottish, Irish, Folk Classical and popular music in his Opus all while maintaining a career as a technologist in the financial service industry.
PAULA TUTTLE has traveled and performed throughout the United States, Europe and Asia as orchestral musician, soloist and chamber music artist. A member of the Pittsburgh Opera and Ballet Orchestras, she also is the solo cellist for PBS's My Music Orchestra, Latshaw Pops Orchestra and the Diamante Orchestra. She teaches cello at University of Pittsburgh, Chatham University and Carnegie Mellon University. Ms. Tuttle studied at Eastman School of Music, Carnegie Mellon University and New England Conservatory.
