Andrew Jonathan Welch
Like Mozart, Fauré, and countless others, Andrew Jonathan Welch is a musician whose career combines performance, composition, leadership and education. Intensely committed to his belief that music can be a dynamic force for good, Andrew’s voracious performance schedule includes appearances in both Southern New England and throughout the East Coast. While recent performances include appearances with Kevin Short, Carmen Balthrop, and members of the National Symphony Orchestra, you are also likely to see him performing at your niece’s voice recital, or neighbor’s choir concert.
An intensely curious musician, Andrew founded the Georgetown Epiphany Festival in 2018, which produced a festival of three concert programs in early 2020 that explored the legacy of Beethoven. He is also the chief curator of the education and performance program Perfect Octave at the Hill Center.
In addition to his curatorial outlets, Andrew is the Director of Music Ministry at Allin Congregational Church in Dedham, and previously served as assistant conductor of the Georgetown Chorale and Artistic Director of the Seriously Fun Singers. He also kindles the flame of discovery that passes from his own teachers through maintenance of his piano studio and a teaching position at Brown, where his students of all ages and abilities constantly challenge him to a more thoughtful, thorough pedagogy.
