Michael Chang-Frieden

Michael Chang-Frieden is a senior at Columbia College studying English Literature.  He has attended California Summer Music, participated in master classes with artists such as Robin Sharp, Hans Boepple, and Wendy Sharp, and worked closely with contemporary composers.  He teaches cello at Saint Ann's School in Brooklyn, where he began cello at age 8.  (He no longer plays a quarter-size cello, but misses the smaller octaves.)  Michael is grateful beyond words to have studied with Irene Sharp for the past twelve years.  After college, he hopes to pursue a graduate degree in cello performance and is especially passionate about chamber music.  Along with music, he is writing a senior thesis on criminal law and literature.
