JOHN MORAN, a native of the Washington, D.C. area, appears regularly as soloist and chamber musician on baroque and classical cello and viola da gamba on both sides of the Atlantic. He received his professional training at the Oberlin Conservatory and the Schola Cantorum (Basel, Switzerland).

After a decade in Europe where he appeared regularly with groups such as The Consort of Musicke, English Baroque Soloists, Les Musiciens du Louvre, and Ex Cathedra, he returned to America where he has played with Folger Consort, Opera Lafayette, the Smithsonian Chamber Players, the New York Collegium, and the Boston Early Music Festival Orchestra, among others. He is principal cellist of the Washington Bach Consort for whom he also co-directs their Wunderkind Projekt, an outreach program that introduces public school students to Bach cantatas. He is artistic director of the period instrument group Modern Musick, in residence at Georgetown University. He teaches baroque cello and gamba at the Peabody Conservatory in Baltimore where he co-directs the Baltimore Baroque Band, the school’s baroque orchestra, with violinist Risa Browder. Recording credits include Dorian Recordings, Bridge Records, Virgin Classics, Deutsche Grammophon, ERATO, ATMA Classique, Hänssler Classic, Deutsche Harmonia Mundi, and Musica Oscura.

Also a musicologist, Dr. Moran is a contributor to Grove Music Online and reviews books on musical topics for various journals. He is writing a historical monograph on the cello for Yale University Press. He is currently vice president of the Viola da Gamba Society of America and president of the Kindler Cello Society of Washington. Other interests include bicycling, linguistics and architecture. He and his wife, Risa Browder, have two sons who pursue musical and artistic interests.

DONGSOK SHIN has been a member of REBEL since 1997. He was born in Boston and played the modern piano from the age of four. Since the early 1980's, he has specialized exclusively on harpsichord, organ, and fortepiano.

Much in demand as a soloist and continuo player, Mr. Shin has appeared with the American Classical Orchestra, ARTEK, Concert Royal, Early Music New York, Carmel Bach Festival, Mark Morris Dance Group, the New York Philharmonic, the Orchestra of St. Luke’s and the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra. He has toured throughout North America, Europe, and Mexico, has been heard on numerous radio broadcasts nationally and internationally, and has recorded for ATMA Classique, Bridge Records, Dorian/Sono Luminus, Hänssler Classic, Helicon, Lyrichord, and Newport Classic. He was a founding member of the Mannes Camerata, receiving international critical acclaim as music director for their productions of early baroque operas, and he was a member, as well as a guest director of NYS Baroque in Ithaca, NY.

In his spare time, he tunes and maintains harpsichords in the New York area (he is the harpsichord technician for the Metropolitan Opera and tuner of the antique keyboards at the Metropolitan Museum), and he is well known as a recording engineer, producer and editor of numerous early music recordings. He is married to early keyboard player and director of ARTEK, Gwendolyn Toth, and they are the proud parents of three children and one new cat.
