Chad Schwartz - Cello, Arranger, and Founder
Chad Schwartz began his musical career by taking piano and cello lessons at an early age. At the age of ten, he joined a quartet that he would remain in through high school. He has studied with Carl Donakowski at James Madison University, graduating with a Bachelors in Music in 2007. He has also studied with Loran Stephenson and Yvonne Caruthers of the National Symphony Orchestra, and various Chamber Music Camps across the Mid-Atlantic region.
Chad has performed in hundreds of weddings and other gigs over the last fifteen years, working with Music By Anthem and Olivera Music Entertainment. In addition, he has played live and recorded in a studio with artists such as Brady Earnhart, Spilling Dew and Greasy Hands.
Chad is also an avid gamer with a few of his favorites being Final Fanatsy VI, Chrono Trigger, NHL 94, Zelda, Mario Galaxy 2 and countless others. In 2006, Chad arranged a quick Zelda medley for the encore of his senior recital at James Madison University. The video went viral as it was one of the only video game covers at the time. This led him to organize what is now the Triforce Quartet. Chad is also the arranger and operator of Triforce Quartet.
