Viola - Sponsored by Susan Sterner


Hailed by the Strad Magazine for his ‘warm hearted playing and tone’, New York based violist and viola da spalla player Andrew Gonzalez lives a fulfilling career as both a soloist and chamber musician. As a sought after chamber musician, his playing has allowed him to collaborate with respected members of the Guarneri, Juilliard, Tokyo, Orion, Borromeo, and Vermeer quartets. Also an accomplished teacher, Andrew served as a fellow of Carnegie Hall’s ‘Ensemble Connect’ from 2016-2018.  In the fall of 2020, Andrew became the violist of the Jasper String Quartet.

Passionate about historical performance, Andrew Gonzalez frequently performs on the baroque viola and violoncello da spalla. Andrew is one of the few people in the world who plays the Violoncello da Spalla, a five stringed cello that is played on the shoulder.
