Matthew Keating is an acclaimed cellist and musician recently returning to Southern California from Honolulu, Hawaii.
Matthew has performed with the American Youth Symphony under the direction of Alexander Treger and the Debut Orchestra with Joann Carniero. Concerts included performances at the Walt Disney concert hall, Royce Hall, as well as recording sessions at Capitol Records collaborating with CBS studios, Burt Bacharach, Jeff Goldblum, and other artists.
He has played with the Honolulu Symphony under the direction of Andreas Delfs. During his time with the symphony, he performed at Honolulu’s premier performing arts theater and concert hall the Neal S. Blaisdell Center. Concerts also included touring to Hawaii’s Big Island to promote the importance of music education as well as playing concerts for local schools.
As a musician and performer, I strive to collaborate with composers, artists and other musicians to expand my own understanding of music as well as to find unique and creative ways to express these ideas to others.
As a teacher, it is my goal to share my knowledge and love of music with students and create a positive environment that fosters a lasting appreciation of music.
Matthew’s most recent project is a collaboration with guitarist Luke Trimble, with whom he is recording a CD dedicated to new works written for guitar and cello.
