Andrew Fouts, baroque violin, joined Chatham Baroque in 2008. In performance with the ensemble he has been noted for his “mellifluous sound and sensitive style” (Washington Post) and as “an extraordinary violinist” who exhibits “phenomenal control”(Bloomington Herald-Times), while the Lincoln Journal-Star wrote that his “talent challenges the top soloists of today’s classical stage.” In 2008 Andrew won first prize at the American Bach Soloists’ International Baroque Violin Competition. In addition to Chatham Baroque, Andrew has performed recently with the Four Nations Ensemble, Apollo's Fire, Musica Pacifica, Philharmonia Baroque, and as soloist with American Bach Soloists. As concertmaster of the Washington Bach Consort the Washington Post has written "... Fouts, the group’s new concertmaster, was exemplary on the highest part, playing with clean intonation and radiant tone." andrew@chathambaroque.org
