For cellist Adam Satinsky, music is for exploring the balance between spontaneity and precision, and between personal expression and communication. He has studied with Stephen Kates of the Peabody Institute, Paul Katz of the Eastman School of Music, and Janos Starker of Indiana University, and attended master classes with prominent cellists such as Lynn Harrell, Ronald Leonard, Luis Garcia-Renart, Stephen Isserlis, Aldo Parisot and Yo-yo Ma. Thisrich and varied training has given Adam a more complete mastery of his craft; and it has opened his eyes to many different forms of musicianship allowing him to develop his uniquely warm and personal style.Adam has been a professional section leader with the Charleston Symphony Orchestra and the Naples Philharmonic Orchestra in Naples, where he has played as principal cellist since 1997.
