Melissa Matson – viola


RPO principal violist MELISSA MATSON is well known to area audiences for her inspired chamber music and orchestral performances. Alsoa fabric artist, Melissa creates artisan-dyed compositions of texture and improvisational mark-making using monoprint and screen print techniques. Her lyrical designs are exhibited and sold in several local galleries.

Melissa has been instrumental in the development of this project, and has devoted many studio days and hundreds of hours of personal time to the cause… both artistically (as the primary duett painting collaborator here in the studio) and pragmatically(as orchestrator of the project and liaison between the Chamberlain Studio and the RPO.)
