    Award-winning performer and CRI recording artist Jeffrey Krieger is among a new generation of solo recitalists who have incorporated technology (the computer and video) as well as an electronic cello (built by Vermont craftsman Tucker Barrett) into performance. He plays the more conventional-looking cello as principal cellist of the Hartford Symphony. Mr. Krieger was a recipient of a 1993 Solo Recitalist Fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts which allowed extensive touring in the U.S.A., and a 1996 State of Connecticut Commission on the Arts Artist Fellowship. He performs in locations ranging from elementary and preparatory schools, to universities, music festivals, alternative performance spaces and museums. Mr. Krieger has premiered over forty works for the electronic cello, several of which have won National Prizes. He has been granted funding support from the Canada Council, Minnesota Composers Forum, the Jerome Foundation, the Rockefeller Foundation, the Andy Warhol Foundation, Massachusetts Cultural Council, the New England Foundation for the Arts, and the Fromm Foundation, among others. Mr. Krieger has a Bachelor of Music Degree from the Hartt School of Music and a Master of Music Degree from the Yale School of Music.
