About Nicholas Mann

Nicholas Mann, chair of MSM’s Strings Department, grew up surrounded by music and musicians, collaborating from an early age with such noted artists as Itzhak Perlman, Lynn Harrell, and his father Robert Mann. Mr. Mann has performed extensively as a recitalist and soloist throughout the United States and Canada. In New York he has appeared on the Great Performers Series at Alice Tully Hall, performed with Chamber Music at the “Y,” and served as concertmaster of the Jupiter Symphony.

Mr. Mann was a founding member of the Mendelssohn String Quartet, which began its career in 1979 and spanned 31 years. The MSQ was a frequent guest at virtually every major music series in the U.S. as well as performing in Canada and Europe. The MSQ commissioned numerous composers, including Mario Davidovsky, Bernard Rands, Augusta Read Thomas, Shulamit Ran, and Tobias Picker. The quartet’s discography includes recordings for Musical Heritage, Nonesuch, Bis, and Newport Classic.

After receiving his Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees from the Juilliard School, where he studied with Dorothy Delay, he made his debut at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in 1983. His participation in summer music festivals includes 10 years at Yellow Barn and the Santa Fe Music Festival, several seasons at Ravinia, Aspen Music Festival, and frequent engagements with San Francisco’s Chamber Music West and Colorado’s Baca Ensemble. Mr. Mann has also performed over 100 duo concerts with his father.

Mr. Mann has a long distinguished career teaching. He taught at the University of Delaware (1989–1998), Harvard University (1992–2001), North Carolina School of the Arts (1997–2003), and the Hartt School of Music (2000–2003). Currently, Mr. Mann is also on the faculty of the Juilliard School.
