Aaron Mossburg, violist, completed his undergraduate studies at the Oberlin Conservatory of Music where he studied with Peter Slowik, and his Master of Music degree from the Cleveland Institute of Music under the tutelage of Robert Vernon, Principal Emeritus of The Cleveland Orchestra. Aaron has attended music festivals across the world, including The Perlman Music Program (New York), Verbier Festival (Switzerland), Pacific Music Festival (Japan), Kneisel Hall (Maine), and the Sarasota Music Festival (Florida).

In 2011, Aaron gave his solo Carnegie Hall debut in which he was invited and sponsored by the Netherlands American Community Trust. In recent years, he has received top honors in the senior divisions of both the American String Teachers Association’s (ASTA) National Solo Competition in New York City and the Ohio Viola Society Solo Competition. He has had the opportunity to perform chamber music and orchestra concerts in such places as the Kennedy Center in Washington D.C., Shanghai, Beijing, Singapore, and the Dominican Republic.


Aaron is currently principal viola of the Akron and Canton Symphonies and a contracted player with the Rochester Philharmonic, as well as a frequent substitute with the Indianapolis Symphony, Tulsa Symphony, Pittsburgh Symphony, and The Cleveland Orchestra.


This past fall, Aaron joined the viola faculty at Cleveland State University. He has also taught multiple lessons and master classes at the Oberlin Conservatory.

Having grown up in rural Indiana, Aaron and his wife, Jeanelle, now reside in Cleveland and enjoy spending time with their two cats, Theodore and Hamilton. In his spare time, Aaron enjoys reading, running, playing and watching basketball, cooking, and woodworking.

Aaron plays on a viola made by Douglas Cox in 2006 in West Brattleboro, Vermont.
