Violin II

Mary Theodore, a Madison resident, is originally from New York State.  In her desire to explore the Pacific Northwest, she took her studies to the University of Washington in Seattle.  There, she earned her Doctor of Musical Arts degree in violin with teacher Ronald Patterson as well as her Master's and Bachelor's degrees in violin and a Graduate Theory Certificate.

Mary has also studied privately with Joey Corpus in New York City and has performed in master classes led by such distinguished artists as Joseph Silverstein, Charles Castleman, and Norman Carroll.  She has extensive orchestral experience and is currently a member of both the Madison Symphony and Wisconsin Chamber Orchestras.  She has also freelanced in the New York City area and played on the film scores for major motion pictures.  Mary is very happy to be playing chamber music, both in a string quartet with area colleagues and in a violin/cello duo with her partner, Andy.  She also enjoys teaching violin, cooking and its consequences, walks, yoga, swimming, travel, Mini and Pepe (two very cool cats), her family, and Andy.
