The Blue Hill Bach Marville Young Artist Fellowship
Blue Hill Bach is grateful to Jan and Robert Marville for their support enabling a promising young musician to participate in the Festival as both a performer and as an apprentice member of the management team, with the opportunity to learn the nuts and bolts of producing concerts in a small community. The Fellowship is awarded to a gifted young artist who seeks a career singng or playing the music of Bach and his contemporaries in a historically-informed style, and who can benefit from performing side-by-side with some of the most distinguished professional Baroque musicians in the United States.
The unique circumstances requiring that we hold our festival “virtually” in 2020 have encouraged us to award this year’s Fellowship to a young artist who is gifted in video technology as well as music. Christopher Andaloro is a junior at Boston College, where he studies neuroscience and sings with the University Chorale under the direction of Blue Hill Bach’s conductor and keyboardist, John Finney.
Originally trained as a boy chorister in the Choir of St. Paul’s, Harvard Square, Chris has performed on tours in Rome, Washington D.C., New York City, and locations throughout New England. Under the direction of John Robinson, he participated in the group’s 2017 recording Ave Maria as a bass vocalist.
