With performances often described as passionate, vivacious, electrifying, and innovative, Billboard charting recording artist Chelsey Green brings the unmatched tone, richness and vibrancy of violin and viola playing to audiences in a whole new way.
A native of Houston, Texas, Dr. Chelsey Green was born into a family of jazz and funk musicians and started her performance career as a violinist at age 5. Though inundated with music of all genres, she focused on classical music studying both privately and publicly at performing arts schools in the Houston public school system.
Dr. Green went on to receive a scholarship for classical viola studies at The University of Texas at Austin where she graduated Summa Cum Laude. Green then went on to receive her Master’s Degree in Viola Performance from The Peabody Conservatory of The Johns Hopkins University and most recently received her doctorate from the University of Maryland College Park.
Chelsey Green and her ensemble, The Green Project, tear down all stereotypes of the violin and viola by fusing traditional classical technique with popular favorites and enticing original songs in various genres– including R&B, Pop, Soul, Funk, Jazz, Alternative, Hip Hop, Gospel and more!
Classically soloing in New York’s prestigious Carnegie Hall at age 16, Chelsey Green and The Green Project have been honored to perform in many highly regarded venues around the world. Green’s varied performance resume includes performances at the Late Show with David Letterman, the Theater at Madison Square Garden, NAACP National Convention, Saint Lucia Jazz Festival, White House Correspondents’ Dinner Reception, BET Honors Dinner, Essence Music Festival, Macy’s Herald Square, Mid-Atlantic Jazz Festival, Lake Arbor Jazz Festival, The Howard Theatre, The Music Center at Strathmore, Blues Alley, Bobby Jones Gospel, The John F. Kennedy Center and more!
