Aaron Wolff (New York) received a B.A. in comparative literature and B.M. in cello performance from Oberlin College & Conservatory, and an M.M. at Juilliard under Joel Krosnick. As a high school student, Aaron won First Prize in the Boston Symphony Concerto Competition, as well as competitions that have led to performances with A Far Cry and the Boston Trio. As a student of Darrett Adkins, he received the 2014 Agnew Bach Prize from the Cleveland Cello Society and was a winner of the Oberlin Concerto Competition in 2016.
