Sam Weiser

Sam Weiser, a member of the award-winning Del Sol Quartet, has studied and performed chamber music with many of today’s greatest musicians and pedagogues. Sam is a graduate of Tufts University, the New England Conservatory, and the San Francisco Conservatory of Music. His teachers include Ian Swensen, Lucy Chapman, James Buswell, and Patinka Kopec.

Sam regularly pioneers works by living composers, premiering hundreds of new works by composers such as Vijay Iyer, Huang Ruo, and Chen Yi. Past performances have included collaborations with legends such as Norman Fischer, Gil Kalish, David McCarroll, Dimitri Murrath, and Jean-Michel Fonteneau. He has also served as concertmaster for the Tanglewood Music Center Orchestra, as well as the New England Conservatory Chamber Orchestra.

When he is not playing music, you can find Sam engaging his imagination by playing (and running) games of Dungeons & Dragons or honing his culinary skills with fresh ingredients from the farmers market.
