About Our Music Director

Kevin Bishop

Kevin Bishop is dedicated to the idea of “music as social action”: the belief that long-term music education can aid community building, personal elevation, and reconstruction. His varied career as a violist, violinist, conductor, composer, educator, researcher, and arts administrator has taken him around the world to study, witness, engage with, and lead social music projects.

Kevin is a founding member and Executive Director of Cuatro Puntos, an organization that uplifts underrepresented, silenced, or persecuted musical voices and genres. His work with Cuatro Puntos has taken him around the world, from Bolivia to Afghanistan to Switzerland and beyond. Kevin also composes and records music inspired by the traditions and people he encounters, and he has both compositions and performances published on albums via the Arkadash, Toccata Classics and Métier, and Naxos labels. Kevin has conducted on some of the biggest stages in Europe, performed viola recitals at Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center, won international competitions, performed chamber music on four continents, lectured at universities across the United States and Europe, and presented at conferences on "music as social action" around the world.
