Aspen Music Festival Teacher’s: Laurie Carney & William Grubb

How lucky we are to have The Aspen Music Festival & School bringing us the best musicians and teachers from all over the world. Enjoy my interview with two very talented musicians, Laurie Carney and her husband William Grubb.


IMG_6221Thanks to my good friend and “agent”, Dede Brinkman, I am able to introduce to you two extremely talented and revered musicians, especially in the Aspen community, Laurie Carney and her husband William Grubb.

Laurie, a teacher at The Aspen Music Festival & School, is a founding member of one of the world’s foremost quartets, The American String Quartet. William, also a teacher at The Aspen Music Festival, is the fourth cellist in Juilliard’s history to earn the Doctor of Musical Arts degree. Upon graduating from Juilliard, he won both the school’s Alumni Award and the Victor Herbert Prize for outstanding cello performance.

“According to the Aspen Music Festival, at fifteen (Laurie) was the youngest person to be accepted into the Juilliard School. As a member of the American String Quartet she appears in more than eighty concerts annually. Engagements have included concerts in the major halls of Berlin, London, Los Angeles, New York, Paris, Rome, and Zurich. Summer festival appearances include Aspen, Blossom, Taos, Spoleto, San Miguel, and Lincoln Center’s Mostly Mozart Festival. Ms. Carney is  in demand as a visiting teacher, presenting master classes in California, Colorado, Indiana, Michigan, and New Mexico. She performs duo repertory regularly with her husband, cellist William Grubb. Her interests include animal and environmental rights.

William Grubb holds teaching posts at four premier musical institutions and was educated at The Juilliard School where he earned three degrees. Mr. Grubb made his professional debut as soloist with the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra at the age of seventeen. While at Juilliard, he won the Concert Artists Guild auditions in New York and was presented in his New York recital debut at Carnegie Recital Hall.  Mr. Grubb has been a member of chamber ensembles including the Cincinnati Chamber Circle, the Concorde Trio, and the New York Chamber Soloists.  He resides in Indianapolis and New York, and is married to violinist Laurie Carney.” ~ Aspen Music Festival
