Hailing from Marietta, Georgia, double bassist Xavier Foley has captivated audiences “with superbly executed performances… playing fluidly and passionately” (Splash Magazine).
Mr. Foley has appeared as soloist with the Atlanta Symphony, Nashville Symphony, the Brevard Concert Orchestra, the Sphinx Symphony Orchestra and with the Sphinx Virtuosi at Carnegie Hall and recently debuted with Philadelphia Orchestra, as well as on tour around the United States. As a winner of the 2016 Young Concert Artists International Auditions, he will make his New York and Washington, DC debuts as only the second double bassist in YCA’s history next season at Merkin Concert Hall, supported by The Sander Buchman Prize, and at the Kennedy Center.
Also a composer, Mr. Foley studied with Edgar Meyer and Eric Sessler at the Curtis Institute of Music. He earned his Bachelor of Music in 2016, after working with Edgar Meyer and Hal Robinson. Mr. Foley’s double bass was crafted by Rumano Solano.
