Meet the Co-Founders of NSCM
Violinist Melissa Bull and cellist Scott Thomas Lesser together founded North Shore Chamber Music (NSCM) in Summer 2014. After two exciting and memorable seasons, the leaders of NSCM have planned another series of concerts for the 2016-2017 Season. They will be featured on the concert in February, as well as performing on all other NSCM concerts joined by Guest Artists.
Melissa & Scott previously played together as a duo performing for private weddings & events and recitals. They have been featured at Indian Hill Music's Bach's Lunch Concerts, where they will be returning again for a fourth time on March 17th, 2017–with pianist Michael Monroe as the NSCM Piano Trio. They often perform at King's Chapel Tuesday Recitals, and also with Accord Chamber Players. They met while studying at The Boston Conservatory, performing as a duo and in a graduate string quartet.
Melissa & Scott also play together in Boston-area regional orchestras including the local Cape Ann Symphony where they both are string principals. They are also section players in the Orchestra of Indian Hill where they played together as acting concertmaster and acting principal cello for a concert during the 2013-2014 season.
Melissa Bull is also Director of Worship Ministries at North Shore Community Baptist Church in Beverly which is where NSCM concerts are presented.
