Melissa White, a first-prize laureate in the Sphinx Competition, has received critical acclaim for solo performances with some of America’s leading ensembles, including the Cleveland Orchestra; the Boston Pops; and the Atlanta, Baltimore, Colorado, Detroit and Pittsburgh symphony orchestras. As a founding member of the award-winning Harlem Quartet, she has appeared in many of the country’s most prestigious venues, including Carnegie Hall, the White House for former President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama, and the Kennedy Center; and internationally in Europe, Africa, Japan, and the U.K., where the ensemble is currently Quartet-in-Residence at the Royal College of Music in London. The musical versatility of Harlem Quartet has also garnered them an international reputation in the world of jazz and following an extensive concert tour with Chick Corea and Gary Burton, the sextet's recording entitled "Mozart Goes Dancing" won a 2013 Grammy Award for Best Instrumental Composition.
