Fourteen-year-old violinist Andrew Dezmelyk is currently in his 4th year at New England Conservatory Preparatory School. He is a member of the Youth Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Steven Karidoyanes. He loves chamber music, and has played in a string quartet as well as in a unique duo with a harpist. He has also enjoyed playing in the 10:00 Baroque Chamber Orchestra with Aldo Abreu. So, when given the opportunity to play with A Far Cry, he quickly jumped at the chance.
He is very grateful to his teachers, Maciek and Jorunn Kaczmarek, for their patience and dedication.
A 9th grader, his favorite academic subjects are writing, geometry and advanced algebra.
When not practicing, he can be found trying his hand at composing. He creates stop-motion animation synchronized to music by his favorite composers, such as Dvorák, Prokofiev, Saint-Saëns, and Beethoven. He has been known to build extensive Rube Goldberg contraptions and draw comic strips. If there's snow on the ground, sledding is his forte.
