Adrienne Hyde is a multi-instrumentalist specializing in historical performance practice on the baroque cello, bass viol, lirone, and bass violin. She graduated from the Eastman School of Music in 2020 and in 2023 she completed her Master’s degrees in Baroque Cello and Viola da Gamba at the Juilliard School on full scholarship. At Juilliard she was a Morse Teaching Artist, a Music Advancement Program Fellow, and a Gluck Community Service Fellow, through which she taught in NYC public schools and mentored young cellists, while providing musical service to her community.
In 2022 she joined the Carmel Bach Festival as a Young Artist performing in a string quartet focused on self study of classical and romantic period performance practice. In the 2022-23 season she will perform as a guest with American Baroque Orchestra, Trinity Wall Street Baroque Orchestra and Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra, and will appear as a guest musician with Repast Baroque, the Sebastians, and in recital at the Helicon Foundation. She will also join the Belgian vocal ensemble Vox Luminis at the Boston Early Music Festival in June 2023.
Adrienne is deeply committed to equity. She is a passionate artistic administrator for the Valissima Institute, a conducting training program for young women committed to gender equity in classical music. Three years ago she co- founded Open Source Baroque, a broken consort of four historical performance students dedicated to the music of women, BIPOC, and LGBTQ composers. She is also a regular volunteer at the Mt. Sinai Psychiatric hospital, where she plays weekly in a high acuity locked ward for patients.
