ROBERT MEALY

Robert Mealy first began exploring early music as a teenager in Berkeley. Medieval music has always been one of his loves, which he explored in tours and recordings with Sequentia, Ensemble PAN, and Fortune’s Wheel. He investigates the quirky and unexpected music of the seventeenth century with his group Quicksilver, and he serves as Orchestral Director for the Boston Early Music Festival, with whom he won a Grammy last year. Here in New York he directs the Historical Performance program at Juilliard and is principal concertmaster for Trinity Wall Street in their ongoing project to perform the complete cantatas of J.S. Bach. He has made over 80 CDs on most major labels.
