Violinist Kendall Grady is from the seaside town of Swansboro, North Carolina on the Crystal Coast and began teaching herself to play the violin at age 10. Kendall has received many awards, among which was her acceptance into the University of North Carolina School of the Arts High School division to study with Joseph Genualdi. After finishing her undergraduate performance degree with Ida Bieler and by Janet Orenstein, she became a guest lecturer and orchestral librarian as Robert Davidovici's teaching assistant. Kendall will complete her Master's of Music performance degree with Scott Flavin at the Frost School of Music as a Henry Mancini fellow. Currently on staff with the Mancini Institute, Ms. Grady has discovered a passion for recording, collaborating, and commissioning new works that pair the violin with other art mediums, such as modern ballet and architecture, to communicate relatable meaning in the contemporary age. With two years of experience teaching ages 3 to 18 in public and private schools, Kendall’s goal is to instill healthy relationships between her students and their instruments that prioritize ease of technical playing and support the student’s unique interests in music.
