Daniel Colston is an avid chamber and orchestral musician who is particularly interested in promoting early twentieth-century English viola music. As both a violinist and violist, he has been a member of the Baylor University Graduate String quartet, a finalist at the MTNA national chamber music competition. He was recently invited to perform with the Garth Newel Piano Quartet and has appeared with artists such as Michael Kannen and Courtney Orlando. As an orchestral player, Daniel has been a member of the Waco Symphony and has played with the Baltimore Chamber Orchestra and the Annapolis Symphony.
As part of his study into the early twentieth-century viola music written for Lionel Tertis, Daniel researched manuscripts of York Bowen in the Royal Academy of Music Archive, culminating in a rare performance of Bowen’s unpublished Poem for Viola, Harp and Organ. Daniel recently received his Doctorate of Musical Arts at the Peabody Conservatory as a viola student of Victoria Chiang. He also holds master’s degrees in both violin and viola from Baylor University, where he was a teaching assistant on both instruments. Before coming to Baylor, he received a double degree in music and history from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, winning the university concerto competition and performing Karl Goldmark’s Violin Concerto in A minor with the UNC symphony. Daniel greatly looks forward to teaching and performing as a member of the Ball State community.
