Aaron Wolff

Aaron Wolff, cello (Newton, MA), received a BA (comparative literature) and BM (cello performance) from Oberlin College & Conservatory, and an MM at Juilliard under Joel Krosnick. Aaron won First Prize in the Boston Symphony Concerto Competition, as well as competitions that have led to performances with A Far Cry and the Boston Trio. As a student of Darrett Adkins, he received the Agnew Bach Prize from the Cleveland Cello Society and was a winner of the Oberlin Concerto Competition. He has spent summers at Greenwood Music Camp and Perlman Chamber Music Workshop, among others, and has participated in master classes by Steven Isserlis, Gary Hoffman, Laurence Lesser, Frans Helmerson, and Hans Jensen. Outside of music performance, Aaron has found creative outlets in acting — most notably in a lead role in the Coen brothers’ film A Serious Man — and in writing about music. He was a fellow at the Rubin Institute for Music Criticism and a reporter for I Care If You Listen at the Ojai Music Festival. Previous Yellow Barn musician (2017)
