MacNeil received her bachelor of music degree from the Manhattan School of Music and her master of music degree from the Curtis Institute of Music.

Her recent performances include concerts with the Apple Hill String Quartet, a solo recital with the Sideman Projekt in Berlin, a Verdi Requiem with the Brattleboro Concert Choir, a Mozart Requiem with the Albany Symphony, and the Winners Recital of the Liederkranz Competition in the Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall.
Tirrell-Wysocki is an award-winning fiddler who grew up playing dances and concerts around New England. He was first recognized as part of New Hampshire’s culture at the age of 12, when he was the youngest member of the delegation representing the state at the Smithsonian Folklife Festival. He has toured nationally with bands in various genres, performed across Ireland, and released multiple recordings of Celtic music that can be heard on radio stations around New England and in the British Isles. He has also written soundtracks for audiobooks and television and appeared as a guest on over 75 albums.
