Nancy Mack began playing the cello at the tender age of 50. After sharing her desire to learn to play, she was surprised by her husband with the gift of a cello. After 4 years of lessons, she joined a community orchestra and went to an adult music camp. She began studying with Nan Kemberling and broadened her cello career.
She created a website, mainstreetstrings.com and started a string quartet, Main Street Strings, who played for weddings, senior centers, and a variety of venues. She leads the ACE cello choir (Adult Cello Ensemble) and writes a blog (blog.mainstreetstrings.com) for aspiring beginner adult string players. She plays with the Main Street Symphony as well as the Alpharetta Symphony Orchestra, having served as principal cellist for the past four years. She has attended chamber music workshops at the Garth Newel Music Center, Cello Chill in North Carolina, SCOR in Rochester, NY and Atlanta, GA, the Adult String Weekend in Tuscaloosa, AL, and the Chamber Music Weekend in Tennessee.
She is on the Board and Treasurer of SCOR-String Camp of Rochester, as well as the Board and Treasurer of the Alpharetta Symphony Orchestra. Nancy encourages adult beginners (as well as children) to play an instrument, as it’s never too late!
