Faythe Vollrath Bio:

Faythe Vollrath, harpsichordist, is actively heard as a soloist and chamber musician throughout New York and California. Solo performances include venues such as the Berkeley Early Music Fest, Boston Early Music Fest, St. Mark’s Early Music concert series in Islip, NY, and the Westminster concert series in Sacramento. A strong advocate of new music for the harpsichord, she has been featured on several concerts dedicated to this pursuit including a solo recital at the Festival of New American Music at CSU-Sacramento.

Dr. Vollrath was a 2012 finalist in the Early Music America Baroque Performance Competition as a member of the harpsichord duo Zweikampf. She competed as a semi-finalist in the 2012 Jurow International Harpsichord Competition, and was the 2009 Betchel award recipient presented by the Midwestern Historical Keyboard Society.

Recently, Dr. Vollrath received both her doctoral diploma from SUNY-Stony Brook under Arthur Haas, and artist diploma from the U of I Urbana-Champaign under Charlotte Mattax Moersch. A special thank you to the Sacramento Saturday Club for their scholarship support during her high school years.
