Bradley Watson was born in Tucson, Arizona and began studying the violin at age two. After completing a Bachelor's degree in violin performance from the Eastman School of Music, Bradley was a founding member of the Del Sol String Quartet. The quartet was invited for two consecutive summers to attend and perform at the Banff Centre for the Arts in Alberta, Canada, and a summer each at Strings in the Mountains and Bravo! Colorado Music Festivals. In addition, the quartet was selected for a two year residency at San Francisco State University under the tutelage of the Alexander String Quartet, where Mr. Watson performed and coached chamber music. Following the residency, Mr. Watson won a position with the New World Symphony conducted by Michael Tilson Thomas in Miami, Florida, and then won positions both with the Houston Ballet Orchestra and the Houston Grand Opera Orchestra. Bradley moved to Denver in 2003 after winning a position with the Colorado Symphony Orchestra and joined the Metropolitan State University of Denver faculty in 2005 where he enjoys a thriving violin studio. Bradley regularly performs in a quartet made up of CSO musicians, and also takes this quartet into Denver area schools to introduce children to live classical music.
