Festival. Abroad, Mr. Law has performed chamber music concerts at the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam,
Holland and Tchaikovsky Hall in Moscow, as well as concerts in England, France, Scotland, Panama and
Puerto Rico. In the US, he has performed at the Washington Performing Arts Club, the Italian and German
Embassies in Washington, D.C., the Kennedy Center’s Terrace Theater, the Metropolitan Museum of Art,
Jazz at Lincoln Center Concert Series, Library of Congress in Washington, DC, Carnegie Hall and
Alice Tully Hall in New York City. He has collaborated with such artists as Earl Carlyss (Juilliard String
Quartet), Michael Tree (Guarneri Quartet), Ying String Quartet, Norman Carroll (concertmaster emeritus,
Philadelphia Orchestra) and violinist Diane Monroe, and has recorded orchestral and chamber music for
Albany Records, and the New Albion and Telarc labels. In March of 2006, Mr. Law was featured on the
nationally televised NAACP Image Awards as a member of the Ritz Chamber Players. In his home state of
South Carolina, Mr. Law has performed at the Piccolo Spoleto Music Festival in Charleston, SC, as a
member of the Converse Trio, and subsequently as a member of Ensemble Argos and the Polaris Piano

Along with co-author Dr. Christina Placilla, the publication, We Are The Music Makers: Volume I: A
Graded Guide to Chamber Music- String Quartets was published in 2013, and is the first in a multivolume
set that will cover the myriad combinations of chamber music. The guide serves as a resource for
chamber music coaches when needing to assign repertoire to an ensemble whose individual members are
of varying levels of proficiency.

Most recently, Mr. Law was invited to join the faculty of the New England Music Camp in Sidney, Maine
for the 2022 summer season.
