About the Artist

Currently a C.V. Starr Doctoral Fellow at The Juilliard School, cellist Samuel DeCaprio is quickly establishing himself as one of today’s most creative artists and collaborators. With performances taking place from the jungles of Bali to the meditative depths of an underground New York City crypt to Carnegie Hall’s Weill Recital Hall, he aspires to use his voice to bring the works of composers, both revered and underrepresented, to uplift modern audiences. Winner of the 2018 Aldo Parisot Prize from the Yale School of Music, awarded to “gifted cellists who show promise for concert careers,” he hopes to reach and inspire new listeners as an ambassador for classical music. Mr. DeCaprio was a winner of the Wilmington Music Festival’s 2019-2020 Emerging Artist Auditions and is currently on the Center for Musical Excellence Artist roster.

Mr. DeCaprio holds degrees from the University of Connecticut (Bachelor of Music, summa cum laude), Eastman School of Music (Master of Music), Mannes School of Music (Professional Studies Diploma), and Yale School of Music (Master of Musical Arts). While at the Eastman School, he was also awarded the prestigious Performer’s Certificate. Mr. DeCaprio performs on a 1714 Claude Pierray cello on generous loan from The Juilliard School.
