Performing Arts Center Recital Hall

Caroline Steiger, active teacher, clinician, and performer both in large and small ensemble settings, joins the Texas State faculty as a new Assistant Professor of Music and artist/teacher of horn. 

She grew up in Southeast Michigan and went on to study at the University of Michigan, earning a B.M. in Horn performance with Teacher Certification in 2010. She earned her M.M. in Horn Performance from Penn State University and her D.M.A. in performance at the University of Michigan in 2015. 

As a teacher Dr. Steiger has held positions at SUNY Potsdam’s Crane School of Music (Visiting Assistant Professor of Horn, 2014), Penn State University (Teacher Assistant), and the University of Michigan (Graduate Student Assistant).  She currently has a thriving private studio in Michigan where several of her students participate in Solo and Ensemble at the District and State levels and perform at the Michigan Youth Arts Festival.  While at Penn State University, Caroline was the Assistant Director of the Penn State Horn Ensemble and helped plan tours that included performances at the Pennsylvania Music Educator’s Association (PMEA) conference, Lancaster, and Hershey, PA. 

Dr. Steiger’s work as a musician has included regular performances with the Toledo Symphony Orchestra as well as playing with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, Detroit Chamber Winds and Strings, and the Mariinsky Theatre Orchestra during its 2015 US tour.  In addition, Dr. Steiger has held Principal positions with the Dearborn Symphony (Dearborn, MI), Adrian Symphony (Adrian, MI), Rochester Symphony (Rochester, MI), Oakland Symphony (Rochester, MI), Orchestra of Northern New York (Potsdam, NY), and the Northern Symphonic Winds (Potsdam, NY).  She has performed in great halls across the country, including Carnegie Hall, Orchestra Hall in Detroit, Heinz Hall in Pittsburgh, the Music Center at Strathmore in Bethesda, and Hill Auditorium in Ann Arbor, getting a chance to work with conductors such as Valery Gergiev, Leonard Slatkin, Stefan Sanderling, Lio Kuokman, Karina Canellakis, and Giordano Bellincampi.

Committed to chamber music, Dr. Steiger has played with the Potsdam Brass Quintet, faculty quintet-in-residence at SUNY Potsdam, and the Emblems Woodwind Quintet, an Ann Arbor-based quintet focused on performing new and underrepresented works. In 2015 she participated in a chamber music residency at the University of Michigan with New York Philharmonic principal winds, where she performed with Philip Myers.  A commitment to new music is evident through her participation in chamber ensembles as well as the University of Michigan’s Contemporary Directions Ensemble, which premiered several works by U of M composition students and participated in the Midwest Composers Symposium in 2013. 

Dr. Steiger’s main teachers include Adam Unsworth, Bryan Kennedy, Lisa Bontrager, Soren Hermansson, and Corbin Wagner.  She has also studied with and participated in master classes with Gail Williams, Fergus McWilliam, David Krehbiel, Robert Ward, Bernhard Scully, and Jeffrey Lang.

Faculty Artist Series presents Ames Asbell, viola, Karla Hamelin, cello and Joey M. Martin, piano
6:00 p.m.
Performing Arts Center Recital Hall

Violist Ames Asbell has performed classical, tango, and popular music in over 30 countries around the world, in venues ranging from Carnegie Hall to universities to clubs. She appears on dozens of internationally released CDs, film scores and broadcasts, including the Dixie Chicks’ Grammy-winning Home, Richard Linklater’s arthouse hit film Waking Life (in which she also appears onscreen), and six appearances on PBS television staple Austin City Limits. From 2001 to 2005, she toured globally with rock legend David Byrne (of Talking Heads), appearing with him on broadcasts such as Late Night with Conan O’Brien, The Late Show with David Letterman and Later...with Jools Holland (BBC) as well as two international DVD releases.

After earning the Doctor of Musical Arts degree from The University of Texas, Ames put down roots in Austin, where she is currently violist of the classical crossover Tosca String Quartet, Principal Violist of the Austin Opera Orchestra and a member of the Austin Symphony Orchestra. She appears regularly with the Victoria Bach Festival, Conspirare and Arizona Musicfest, and is  also in great demand as a chamber musician throughout the area.

Ames has performed with artists in a wide variety of musical styles, such as Andrea Bocelli, Stevie Wonder, Bernadette Peters, John Cale, Gilberto Gil, Bonnie Raitt, and Harry Connick, Jr. She has played tango in Argentina, most notably at the Fifth World Tango Summit in Rosario in 2000 with Tosca Tango Orchestra performing the Nuevo tango chamber compositions of Glover Gill. Her orchestral experience includes the San Antonio Symphony, North Carolina Symphony, and regional orchestras around the state of Texas, and she has also performed on Baroque viola with La Follia Austin Baroque and the St. Cecilia Baroque Festival. She has recorded for labels such as Nonesuch, Harmonia Mundi, Naxos, Sony and Merge, as well as a multitude of smaller and independent labels.

A passionate teacher, Dr. Asbell has twice had the honor of teaching the top high school violist in the state of Texas, and her former students have gone on to study at prestigious schools of music such Eastman, Rice, Oberlin, Peabody and others. She has served on Texas State University faculty since 2005, teaching viola and chamber music as well as theory and music literature courses and performing with faculty ensembles. In fall 2010, she launched the Texas State String Project, a Suzuki-based community outreach program which offers string instruction to San Marcos-area elementary-school students.

Cellist Karla Hamelin is a dynamic soloist, educator and interdisciplinary performer known for her effective teaching style and distinctive collaborations.

On faculty at Texas State University School of Music since 2011, she teaches across a range of areas including cello, chamber music, string pedagogy, string literature, introduction to fine arts and is the director of the Texas State String Camp. Having taken certification Suzuki training books 1 through 6, Dr. Hamelin is the Master Teacher at the Texas State String Project.

An accomplished performer, Karla is a frequent recitalist who appears in both large and small ensembles in Austin and throughout the Central Texas area. She has worked with numerous artists in other disciplines including composers, dancers, choreographers, visual artists, poets, authors and actors. Her ability to play a broad and diverse spectrum of repertoire has made her in demand as a performer of new works, a sought after chamber musician and a featured artist in a baroque cantata series. Karla has also volunteered extensively with non-profit music organizations and collaborated on events benefitting associations as diverse as Please be Kind to Cyclists, Hope Arts Festival, Symphony of the Soul and Wheelchairs for Iraqi Kids.

Karla received her doctorate in cello performance from The University of Texas at Austin. She holds additional degrees from The University of Michigan (M.M.) and the University of Manitoba (B.M.). Her principal teachers have included Anthony Elliott, Phyllis Young, Ronald Leonard and the late Julie Banton. Karla has spent summers at The Banff Center for the Arts, the Aspen Music School, The Johannesen School for the Arts, Texas Music Festival, Aria Summer Academy and the International String Workshop.

Equally dedicated to performing and pedagogy, Karla is a popular lecturer and clinician who is in demand as a private teacher for students from four to eighteen years of age. Dr. Hamelin has quickly established herself as a highly respected pedagogue whose students have consistently placed in all-state and regional orchestras, been prize winners in state and national competitions, regularly attend summer festivals such as Interlochen, Brevard, Eastern Music Festival, Meadowmount, Aria and the Tanglewood Pre-College Institute. Dr. Hamelin’s cello students have achieved great success with acceptance to highly respected music programs such as the University of Michigan, Oberlin Conservatory, The Cleveland Institute of Music, The Boston Conservatory, The University of Texas at Austin, The University of Houston, Texas Christian University, The University of Wisconsin – Madison, Lawrence Conservatory, DePaul University, Hardin Simmons University, The Berklee College of Music and the University of California - San Francisco. Throughout her career, she has presented Masterclasses in Canada, the US and Mexico.

In her spare time, Karla enjoys running the many hilly and scenic trails of Austin and Central Texas where she trains for full and half marathons. Karla’s most devoted friend in this daily pursuit of higher learning and musical study is her 1770 Joseph Hill cello.

He started playing xylophone when he was six and, while still in tenth grade, Richards played with the Hartford Symphony Orchestra.

In the early-to-mid 1960's, Richards co-led the Hindustani Jazz Sextet with Don Ellis.
