Madeline Falcone, violin & viola
Madeline Falcone is an ambitious performer who is interested in the interpretation of music ranging from traditional classics to experimental contemporary works. A versatile collaborative artist, Madeline is active in Los Angeles and New Orleans and performs regularly with the Isaura String Quartet, violin/viola duo Story Water, and with cellist Aniela Marie Perry. She has appeared in solo roles including VLN & VLA at REDCAT and Alex Vassos’ opera The House is Open, and has also performed with Vinny Golia’s Large Ensemble, the Thelonius Monk Sextet, Dorian Wood’s Rattle Rattle Chamber Orchestra, OperaBreve, YMF’s Debut Orchestra, Classical Revolution L.A., Mike Keneally, and Jóhann Jóhannsson.
As a proponent of experimental and contemporary music, Madeline has worked closely with composers, writers, and multimedia artists including Anne LeBaron, Mark Menzies, Daniel Corral, Ajay Kapur, Jules Gimbrone, Raúl Gómez, Vinny Golia, Mark Yakich, and Gloria Coates.
In addition to performing, Madeline is a dedicated teacher. She has participated as a regular teacher, guest artist, and assistant to the director at the Greater New Orleans Youth Orchestras Summer Festival, New Orleans String Project Summer Camp, and Virginia Commonwealth University Strings Camp, and currently teaches at the Rhodes School of Music in Los Angeles.
The dedication and focus that Madeline has applied to her musical career is symbiotic with her life as a competitive long distance runner. She holds the unofficial Loyola school record in the marathon and half marathon and is currently looking forward to running her first ultramarathon.
