Portrait of Dexter Doris

Dexter Doris, 12, has been playing the violin since he was 4. He started in the Suzuki program at his pre-kindergarten and has been playing ever since. At 5, he had played through most of the Suzuki books and was admitted to the Bard Conservatory Pre-College Program. After 3 years in the program, his family moved to the metro NYC area where he has continued his studies with renowned teachers Sally Thomas and Ann Setzer. His awards include: Little Mozart (1st place), Primo Competition (2nd place) and he is the Music Teachers National Association (MTNA) NY state champion 2017/2018.

In addition to solo violin, Dexter plays chamber music with 2 groups in the New York Youth Symphony and his trio has won awards in local chamber competitions. He also enjoys playing piano and took lessons for 3 years at Bard. In Summer, he attends Meadowmount School for Strings in Westport, NY.

Giving back is one of Dexter’s goals with his music and he volunteers at Song Catchers; a music program for underserved children in New Rochelle, NY.

Dexter will be playing the fourth movement from Vieuxtemps’ Violin Concerto No. 4.
