Andrew Mille began his cello studies in the USC Strings Project in Columbia S.C. at the age of eight. He played for both the South Carolina Youth Philharmonic Orchestra during his high school years, and in 2000 was awarded the Harry Lightsey Cello Scholarship to study at the College of Charleston, under the instruction of Damian Kremer of the Charleston Symphony.
In the summers spanning from 2001 to 2004, Mille attended the Meadowmount School of Music in upstate New York, a Summer Festival and School that claims such distinguished alumni such as Itzhak Perlman, Joshua Bell and Yo-Yo Ma.
Upon completion of his bachelor’s degree in 2005, Mille studied with internationally renowned cellist Natalia Khoma as part of the College of Charleston’s graduate-level Artist Certificate program.
Mille currently performs cello and taps South Carolina’s top local talent for private concerts, festivals, weddings and private events, through his Charleston-based company Charleston Entertainment, a network of professional musicians and performers. Charleston Entertainment has been a member of the Charleston Visitors Bureau and the Charleston Area Travel Council, a network of leading businesses committed to ensuring Charleston’s continued success as one of the world’s top destination cities.
Andrew’s lovely wife Arlene Felipe is curator of Charlestonaire, a lifestyle blog and online shop dedicated to everything Charleston.
