About Mason S.

Hi! I am a young professional musician based in Evanston, IL. I am currently the core violist in the Chicago based Fifth House Ensemble, as well as violist in the start-up Chrysalis rock orchestra in NYC. I have two degrees in viola performance from the Jacobs School of Music at IU, and a total of 15+ experience on the instrument. I also have ~10 years of experience on violin! I have played all sorts of music- pop, rock, classical, contemporary, bluegrass, improv... you name it! Whatever your goals are as a musician, I am here to help you achieve them- regardless of level and age! I believe that EVERYONE should have the access and ability to pursue whatever musical interests they have. I look forward to working with you!

Core Violist
Sep 2021 - Present
Fifth House Ensemble
Praised by the New York Times for its “conviction, authority, and finesse,” the Chicago-based Fifth House Ensemble harnesses the collaborative spirit of chamber music to reach beyond the traditionally-perceived limits of classical music. The ensemble’s artistic, educational, and civic programs engage theater groups, video game designers, corporate innovators, and folk bands to share stories as diverse as the communities it serves.
