The Musicians of the Nashville Symphony would like to introduce you our new Assistant Principal Cellist, Kevin Bate. Kevin comes from Brookfield, Wisconsin near Milwaukee where he began playing cello at age 9. Kevin attended the University of Wisconsin, and then went to Germany to attend the Freiburg Conservatory. He studied under the famous cellist Janos Starker at Indiana University and also attended DePauw University in Indiana.

He has held the position of Artist-in-Residence for the Evansville Philharmonic and has played as a sub with the cello sections of the Indianapolis and Detroit symphonies. Kevin comes to Nashville with his wife, violinist Jung Min Shin, and their 10-month old daughter, Liana. When not playing the cello or being a new dad, Kevin enjoys making wine and beer, plus he has recently taken up the hobby of geocaching. He tells us he is impressed with the wealth of live music of all genres that occurs in Nashville.

Please join us in welcoming Kevin to our orchestra and our city.
