Bio
Kelly Aus is a versatile violinist with a solid classical background.  At the age of three, she became enamored with the violin and gave her mother chills during a church service when she stood on the pew and declared,"I should be up there!"  This, along with the blessing of an instrument through friends of her grandparents, was just the beginning.
 
In 2011, Kelly made the move from her hometown of Fargo, ND to Nashville, TN.  In a relatively short period of time, she has been credited on recording projects with producers Paul Ebersold (Three Doors Down, Third Day, Skillet) and Noah Henson (Pillar), appeared in music videos directed by Carl Diebold (Rascal Flatts, Gavin DeGraw, Everlife), and performed alongside a growing list of artists including Jenn Bostic, Moriah Peters, Lara Landon, and J. Churchill Morris.  In addition to this, Kelly has remained an active professional Symphony musician, having wrapped up her seventh season with the Fargo-Moorhead Symphony in June 2012 and played frequently over the past two seasons with the Huntsville Symphony Orchestra, incluing a performance with the celebrated Irish music ensemble, Celtic Woman.
 
Kelly holds a Bachelor of Music Degree from Concordia College, Moorhead. Kelly has six years' experience teaching Orchestra in the public schools of Fargo-Moorhead: one of the nation's top 100 communities for music education.  Students from her private studio have gone on to win chairs in All-State Orchestras, Youth Symphonies, Governor's Schools, and superior ratings at Regional and State solo and ensemble contests.  Kelly is currently the head violin mentor at ROOTS Worship Arts Academy (formerly School of Worship) in Franklin, TN.
