I am a violinist based in Philadelphia pursuing my Masters in Music at Temple University. I perform solo or with any combination of strings (I.E. violin duet, string quartet, violin/cello duet). I have lots of experience playing gigs, ranging from weddings to social events. While I am primarily a classical musician, I would be happy to play arrangements of popular music as well!

Here is my biography:
Michael Shingo Crawford graduated from Emory University in May 2017 with a Bachelor of Arts in Music, with concentrations in violin performance and composition. Born in Lawrenceville, Georgia, he began playing violin at age seven, studying first with Victor DeLisa and later with Laura Nadine. While at Emory, he studied violin with Shawn Pagliarini. Michael was concertmaster of the Emory University Symphony Orchestra during his senior year and was the winner of the 2015-2016 Concerto and Aria Competition with the Barber Violin Concerto. He was also an active member of Emory's Chamber Music Program. Over the past three summers, he attended the Franklin Pond Chamber Music College Festival, National Symphony Orchestra Summer Music Institute, and Eastern Music Festival, where he was assistant concertmaster. Michael presented an honors composition recital in Spring 2017, where his music was performed by the Vega String Quartet, Elena Cholakova, and Emory's student and alumni musicians. He was awarded the Louis B. Sudler Prize in the Arts, a prestigious award presented to the graduating senior who demonstrated the highest proficiency in one of more of the performing or creative arts at Emory. He is currently pursuing a Masters of Music in Composition at Temple University, and was recently selected as a finalist in the Costello Competition for Composition.
