Danny Seidenberg has enjoyed a varied and eclectic musical career moving between classical, jazz, pop, folk styles, and early music performance practice as a performer and composer, arranger, and educator. He made his solo viola debut at age 16 with the Pittsburgh Symphony as part of their Young People's Concert series. After attending the Julliard School, Danny was a New York player for many years with such groups as American Ballet Theater, New York City Opera, Brooklyn Philharmonic, Orchestra of St Luke's, Joffrey Ballet, American Composers Orchestra, and the Radio City Music Hall.
He is probably best known for his 12 years as the violist of the Turtle Island String Quartet. Danny left the quartet in 2003 for a successful tenure as a busy studio musician in Los Angeles, playing on hundreds of movie and TV scores, as well as the LA Opera, LA Chamber Orchestra, Hollywood Bowl Orchestra, and as principal viola of the Pasadena Pops. Danny was on the faculty of the Henry Mancini Institute at UCLA for many years, and is also an adjunct instructor at U Mass and Belmont University. He has been in Oregon since 2007 and has been playing with the Portland Opera, Eugene Symphony, Corvallis Symphony, Salem Chamber Orchestra, Oregon Mozart Players, Portland Chamber Orchestra, and Portland Baroque Orchestra. Danny's latest recording, ‘Alto Logic', with his very special trio, the ‘Unbande' (2 violas and the Chapman Stick) is available at CD Baby.
