July 17, 2015RecordingJust back from a week of recording in Cincinnati with double bassist Szymon Marciniak. We put in a few really solid sessions, and had a great time hanging out with composer Frank Proto. I'm really looking forward to the CD/DVD release early next year!

June 9, 2015May wrap-upI've just come to the end of a busy and exciting stretch, with a couple of DSO concerts (Bernstein Kaddish Symphony), the Mendelssohn D minor trio with a couple of wonderful players on the Spectrum series, and most recently a week of bass madness at the ISB convention. Playing again with Szymon Marciniak was a treat (world premieres of works by Frank Proto and Shang Lu, plus a likely US premiere of Richard Dubugnon's sonata), plus exciting collaboration with everyone from a tango specialist to a longtime LA Phil player to an avant-garde performance artist.
Coming up on the 19th is an exciting project combining a contemporary photography exhibition with music of the Second Viennese School (details on my calendar)!
April 3, 2015ISB etcMany thanks to everyone who came out to hear me at Merkin Hall last week and in the Spectrum chamber concert at First Jefferson Unitarian Church this past Monday! A couple of updates:
This June I'll be premiering two massive new works for double bass and piano, the Fantasy Higgs Boson by Shang Lu, and a new sonata by Frank Proto, arguably the most prolific composer ever for that instrument. This will mark the second time in as many years I've gotten to collaborate with the outstanding bassist Szymon Marciniak, this time at the International Society of Bassists convention in Fort Collins, Colorado.
Before that, though, I'm playing loads of violin repertoire around Fort Worth (two Brahms sonatas, Franck, Beethoven...) and in May have my next gig with the Dallas Symphony, in their Bernstein Kaddish Symphony performances.
Spring/summer is filling up fast, and next season's engagements are going up on the calendar as they come in...
January 20, 2015Great concerts in DallasDone with two weekends performing in varied roles with the Dallas Symphony Orchestra, most recently as a soloist in John Adams' Grand Pianola Music! Many thanks to the DSO and Maestro Case Scaglione.

Yesterday's rehearsal with Maestro Jaap van Zweden was a blast! My solo debut with the orchestra is next weekend in John Adams' Grand Pianola music -- details on my calendar.

Thanks to the International usic Fund Chicago, and to everyone in China, for making these happen.
June 4, 2014TCA Touring RosterI am honored to announce that the Texas Commission on the Arts has added me to its Texas Touring Roster for 2014-16!! You can read their press release here:
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Contact: Evan Mitchell
(201) 704-2644, firstname.lastname@example.org
EVAN MITCHELL ACCEPTED FOR NEW
TEXAS COMMISSION ON THE ARTS TEXAS TOURING ROSTER
Austin, TX – June 4, 2014 – 3LDQLVW Evan Mitchell is pleased to announce he has been approved for inclusion on the new Texas Commission on the Arts (TCA) Texas Touring Roster. The Texas Touring Roster features some of the state’s best artistic talent and is designed to ensure that all Texans may enjoy events and performances by these artists in their local communities. Mitchell is one of 150 artists and arts companies selected for inclusion on the roster.
“Artists on the Texas Touring Roster travel to communities across the state and perform in a variety of venues,” said TCA executive director Gary Gibbs. “In addition to performances, they may also conduct workshops, master classes, residencies, lecture-demonstrations or arts education components as a way to engage community residents. We are proud to offer the citizens of Texas access to such high-quality artistic talent.”
Artists on the roster must have a history of touring and maintain a reasonable fee range. The Texas Commission on the Arts does not provide direct funds to artists in the Texas Touring Roster. Instead, TCA provides grants to arts presenters, schools, libraries, theaters, and other nonprofits and government units throughout Texas to help with the cost of bringing in companies and artists from the roster. Presenters may apply through TCA’s Arts Respond Performance Support grant category for a portion of the artistic fees for artists from the Texas Touring Roster.
Acceptance onto the Texas Touring Roster benefits artists like Mitchell by giving them a powerful marketing tool. Access to grant funds combined with the fact that Texas Touring Roster artists have been deemed the best in their field by a panel of statewide experts makes these artists attractive to a variety of presenters, including schools, festivals, theaters and other venues.
Artists on the Texas Touring Roster range from individual performing and visual artists to large performing arts companies. They represent artistic disciplines including music, visual art, dance, theater, storytelling, literary art and folk art. Options are diverse and range from ballet to bluegrass, animation to poetry, jazz to children’s theater, and everything in between.
More information on Evan Mitchell is available at www.evanmitchell.net. The complete Texas Touring Roster, as well as information on the Arts Respond Performance Support grant category, is available online at www.arts.texas.gov.
About the Texas Commission on the Arts
The mission of the Texas Commission on the Arts (TCA) is to advance our state economically and culturally by investing in a creative Texas. TCA supports a diverse and innovative arts community in Texas, throughout the nation, and internationally, by providing resources to enhance economic development, arts education, cultural tourism and artist sustainability initiatives.

Lauded for his “impassioned and vigorous” playing (Pianomania), pianist Evan Mitchell has established himself as a bold and versatile artist. Last season, Evan’s richly varied schedule of well over 50 appearances included solo recitals, concerti, chamber music, and performances as an orchestral keyboardist. His performances have been deemed “incredibly beautiful” (Fanfare), “amazing” (Fort Worth Weekly), and “no less than stunning” (Lima News). Evan’s recording of Claudio Santoro’s Sonata No. 4, “Fantasia” (1957) is featured on the 2012 CD release, “Piano de Pampa y Jungla: A Collection of Latin American Piano Music.”
Evan’s performances have been heard in New York’s Steinway Hall and Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall, and in nine countries on four continents. His November 2012 recital on the PianoForte Foundation’s Salon Series Live was broadcast to 45,000 listeners on WFMT (Chicago) and streamed online. Additional performances have been broadcast on WFHB (Bloomington, IN) and FM 91 (Northwest Ohio). Evan has soloed in concerti with such ensembles as the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra, Lima Symphony Orchestra, and the Victoria Symphony; collaborated with conductors including Jaap van Zweden, Miguel Harth-Bedoya, Darryl One, Crafton Beck, Richard McKay, and David Effron; and has performed chamber music with members of the Los Angeles Philharmonic and the symphony orchestras of Cleveland, Dallas, and Rio de Janeiro (OSB). Last season’s highlights included a recital for Chicago’s prestigious Dame Myra Hess Memorial Concerts and a concert in Shanghai’s 1,900-seat Oriental Art Center. Most recently, in January 2015 Evan made his debut with the Dallas Symphony Orchestra under the baton of Case Scaglione, Associate Conductor of the New York Philharmonic.
A passionate and articulate advocate for the arts, Evan looks constantly for ways to reach new audiences, and to inspire in others a love for music. The Texas Commission on the Arts recently named Evan to its 2014-16 Texas Touring Roster, a program that provides grants to nonprofit presenters in order to fund performances by the state’s finest musicians, poets, visual artists, and more. In the 2015-16 season, Evan returns for a fourth year as a featured artist for Musical Awakenings®, the signature educational outreach program of the Van Cliburn Foundation, which exposes more than 30,000 public school students annually to classical music. Other performance affiliations include the Goss-Michael Foundation (contemporary British visual art) and DFW-based Open Classical, whose motto – “Music that’s dressed down, not dumbed down” – summarizes a mission to present classical music in less formal, unconventional spaces. Evan’s enthusiasm for the music of our time is reflected in recent world premieres of works by Ellen Taaffe Zwilich, Frank Proto, Shang Lu, and Stacy Garrop, several of which will soon be recorded and released commercially.
Among other honors, Evan has captured first prize in the Kingsville International Young Performers Competition, Five Towns Competition, PianoTexas International Festival Concerto Competition, and the Twelfth Annual Competition in the Performance of Music from Spain and Latin America, in which he was also awarded the Jacques Klein Prize for Best Performance of a Brazilian Solo Piano Work. He won Fifth Prize at the 2012 World Piano Competition, and has received additional recognition in the Schmidbauer International Young Artists Competition, Music Teachers National Association Competition, and the BNDES International Piano Competition. Evan won a special audience award in the final concert of the 2009 PianoFest series (Freiburg, Germany), and was featured in the Rising Stars concert of the 2008 Toronto Summer Music Festival. Most recently, he gave a recital at Merkin Concert Hall in New York City as a quarterfinalist in the 2015 Honens International Piano Competition.
A native of Montclair, New Jersey, Evan holds degrees from the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music and is currently working toward his Doctor of Musical Arts degree at Texas Christian University, where he studies with John Owings. His principal teachers have included Arnaldo Cohen and the late José Feghali, and he has worked with numerous artist-teachers including Dr. Yoheved Kaplinsky, Barry Douglas, and Ann Schein. Evan also recently joined the faculty of Tarrant County College.
