Justin Lepard is a cellist, improviser, and songwriter. He received his Bachelor’s degree from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, his principal teachers being Gregory Beaver for classical music and Darryl White for jazz. He has always explored music through a multi-faceted approach, bringing strong classical technique, improvisation, and stylistic diversity to his sound. Over the last few years he has travelled to six countries, including Canada, Germany, and Switzerland, to perform as an improviser and experimental musician. His time on tour with the Lucerne Festival Young Performance Ensemble, which worked closely with MIT’s Media Lab, inspired him to delve into the technological side of music-making, and now he aspires both to hone his particular brand of cello playing and bring it to stage and studio collaborations.
