Bio: Rex Colin Mitchell was raised on his parents’ cattle ranch in the West Desert of Utah. Thanks to the tenacity and sacrifice of his parents, he was able to travel to the Wasatch Front to take lessons through his teenage years, which eventually led him to attend Utah State University for a Bachelor’s degree in cello performance, where he studied with Anne Francis Bayless and developed his love for chamber music. After graduating, he took his wife and daughter to Tucson, Arizona, where he earned his Master’s degree at the University of Arizona. As a member of the U of A Baroque Ensemble, he studied historical performance in Daroca, Spain, and also performed at the Festival Alfonso Ortiz Tirado in Alamos, Mexico. He has recently moved back to Utah, this time with his wife, daughter, and new son, and is excited to begin teaching at the Gifted Music School!
