A violinist and artistic visionary, Cassidy Goldblatt is fascinated by music’s ability to cross cultural boundaries, and her performances aim both to connect artists across disciplines and to engage audiences in the music-making process.

She was named a 2015 EXCELerator Fellow at the University of Michigan for her work with Converge, and her collaborations have helped advance a more active partnership between student composers and performers at the university. Cassidy has also begun exploring administration and currently acts as general manager for the Boston Chamber Symphony.
