Greyson Geisness



Instrument: Viola




Greyson Geisness is a rising violist based out of sunny Florida.  This year he will be beginning his studies at the Interlochen Arts Academy as a junior in high school. Prior to this move, he was very active in the musical community in the Tampa area, where he had performed in orchestras, quartets and as a soloist at numerous events.  Additionally, he taught children and adults violin and volunteered his musical talent for several organizations.  While in Florida, he was principal viola in the Pinellas Youth Symphony and he performed with the University of Tampa orchestra on occasion.   Greyson started his musical journey at age three, using the Suzuki Method.  In Florida, he studies under Mr. Lei Liu of the Florida Orchestra and now he will also be studying under Dr. Renee Scarik at Interlochen.  His many years of study helped him win the southeastern region award for the National 2022 and 2023 Wendell Irish Viola competitions.  Additionally, Maxmilian, a quintet he was in, received a first-place prize award in the Charleston International Music Competition.  He has had the honor to perform masterclasses for Rachel Ku, Carol Rodman, David Harding, and Charles Castleman and to take part in the Philadelphia International Music Festival and the renowned Castleman Quartet Program.  Greyson also volunteers at the local library and after learning about the many benefits of early music exposure and how many children don't get this advantage, he started a program for children called “Find Your Musical Superpower”.  Apart from music, Greyson also enjoys tennis, snowboarding, and skimboarding.  He hopes to continue his education in music performance and bring the joy of music into people's lives.
