Blythe Lilly Quelin is a multi-talented musician with an extensive background of advanced study in violin, piano, and voice. Her musical education began at the age of three with Suzuki violin study under Inna Nederezov, and at five she became the youngest student ever accepted into the studio of James Waring, now-retired violinist with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra. Ms. Quelin spent the next fourteen years under Mr. Waring's tutelage acquiring a broad grasp of technique as well as chamber music, solo, and concerto repertoire for the violin. While an undergraduate student at Westminster Choir College, she continued her violin study with Dr. Mia Wu. Blythe's violin was made in 1987 by William Whedbee of Chicago, IL.

Ms. Quelin studied the piano for two years with Sonia Geoffrey, after which she was accepted into the elite studio of internationally-prominent teacher and composer, Catherine Rollin. Her repertoire included works by Bach, Mozart, Chopin, and Debussy, and she participated successfully in numerous local and state-wide piano competitions.

Blythe began serious vocal study in high school with Judith Premin, and ultimately decided to continue her musical education in voice performance at Westminster Choir College. Ms. Quelin was fortunate to be the recipient of numerous scholarships while a student at Westminster, and graduated magna cum laude in 2004 with a Bachelor of Music degree in vocal performance. Following a year of study at the New England Conservatory with soprano Luretta Bybee, Ms. Quelin returned to Westminster Choir College in order to continue working with her teacher there, Ms. Margaret Cusack. She received her Master's degree in vocal pedagogy and performance from Westminster in 2008. While a student at Westminster, Blythe performed the soprano roles of Ifigenia in Handel's Oreste, Amy in Mark Adamo's Little Women, and Janthe in Heinrich Marschner’s Der Vampyr. She has coached with Daniel Beckwith, J. J. Penna, and Dalton Baldwin, and was privileged to sing in the Westminster Choir and the Westminster Symphonic Choir under Dr. Joseph Flummerfelt. With the Westminster Choir, she recorded the album Heaven to Earth and performed in Lakmé and I Capuleti e i Montecchi at the Spoleto Festival U.S.A. in Charleston, South Carolina. Ms. Quelin also performed Handel’s Messiah with Sir Neville Marriner and Nicholas McGegan, Mahler’s Symphony No. 3 with Sir Michael Tilson Thomas and Lorin Maazel, Berlioz’s Requiem with Charles Dutoit, and Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9 with Lorin Maazel.

Ms. Quelin maintains a teaching studio of thirty voice and piano students in the Princeton, NJ area. She also sings as a cantor and soprano section leader at Queenship of Mary Catholic Church. Blythe lives in Plainsboro, NJ, with her husband, Jérôme, and their adorable dog, Pixel. She enjoys knitting and crochet when she is not teaching or performing.
