IEM Artistic Director has been awarded the Johns Hopkins Alumni Association Global Achievement Award
"Mark exemplifies the multifaceted musical artist for which the Johns Hopkins University has become known. A complete musician, Mark has been lauded around the world for his endeavors as a performer, teacher, entrepreneur, and scholar. He has performed with countless early music groups at festivals from Boston to Germany, and from Italy to Panama. His impact is local, as well—Mark is a founding member of the Baltimore and Peabody consorts. Recognized for his impact and ability in the early music world, he was named Artistic Director of the Indianapolis Early Music Festival, the oldest continual presenter of early music in the United States. Presenting music accessible to the world, Mark has been heard on NPR, CBC, and the BBC. His twenty-four recordings can be heard on various labels, as well as two motion picture soundtracks. A multi-instrumentalist who excels in the cittern, recorder, and guitar, Mark’s primary work is on the lute, for which he has published extensive transcriptions and entabulations. As the recipient of the award for Outstanding Contributions to Early Music Education by Early Music America, as well as founder of the high school early music program at Interlochen Arts Camp, Mark is a passionate and committed teacher. As such, his impact extends far beyond his own travels, with former students all over the world. Mark demonstrates the kind of humanistic musicianship so often found in the Renaissance and Baroque musicians he studies, but with a global perspective of the twenty-first century."
