Devin Sherman is a guitarist and teacher. He lives in Pittsburgh where he performs solo and chamber music with a cast of unique and talented musicians including the ensembles NAT 28, Eclectic Laboratory Chamber Orchestra, and Alia Musica. In addition to performing contemporary chamber music, Devin performs with flutist Sarah Steranka and the Riversong String Ensemble. Devin also makes up one-half of Duo Cortado, a guitar duo that has commissioned and premiered a number of new works. As a soloist, Devin connects audiences with contemporary guitar music that they are unlikely to hear anywhere else. Programs include lesser known works by well-known composers, new music by emerging composers, structured improvisations, and established works from the contemporary repertoire.
He studied guitar with Matthew Slotkin (Mansfield University), and Christopher Berg (University of South Carolina). While at the University of South Carolina, he performed for numerous University events including the award-winning Southern Exposure new music series, USC Wind Ensemble, Collaborations in Contemporary Art (Cica), and the New Voices series.
