New Mellon Fellow is one of our own!

David Matchim, of Rocklin, CA, and a graduate of the Conservatory in Trumpet Performance this past spring, has been named this years' Mellon Fellow. David will use this experience to pursue a career in Orchestral or Music librarianship, and plans to earn a double graduate degree in Trumpet Performance/Library Science from either UCLA or Northwestern University.

David previously worked in the Conservatory Library as a circulation attendant, the Conservatory Ensemble Library as a student manager of the Oberlin Chamber Orchestra and College Community Winds, and was a member and manager of the Tappan Brass Quintet. He also teaches nearly a dozen young trumpet players in the Oberlin area.

We are excited for David and look forward to having him work with us in his new and important capacity! Congratulations David!
