Zachary DePue has established himself in concert venues around the world delivering virtuosic high-energy performances. He demonstrates command as a leader, soloist, collaborator, and improvisational artist reaching across a diverse landscape of music. His authentic warmth and generosity on stage invites audiences to join him in all his explorations.

DePue became one of the youngest concertmasters in the country when he was appointed to the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra (ISO) in 2007. For more than a decade, DePue served the orchestra as a passionate and dedicated leader both in and outside the concert hall. He was named a member of the Stanley K. Lacy Executive Leadership Series, connecting Indianapolis’ emerging leaders to the issues and needs of the community. 

DePue rose to international prominence as a founding member of Time for Three, with whom he performed for 15 years. During his tenure with the category-defying trio, he made numerous tours and gave high-profile appearances, including a performance on the 2014 semifinals round of ABC’s Dancing with the Stars. They were the ISO’s first ensemble-in-residence, charged with introducing new audiences to the symphony experience and breathing fresh creative life into the orchestra’s Happy Hour Concert Series. DePue recorded four albums of original music and arrangements with Time For Three. Their 2014 release featured collaborations with ukulele phenom Jake Shimabukuro on “Happy Day,” the uplifting DePue-penned opening cut; saxophonist Branford Marsalis in the rollicky original “Queen of Voodoo;” cellist Alisa Weilerstein in a quartet version of Rachmaninoff’s “Vocalise;” and singer/songwriter Joshua Radin in four of his early songs. The trio members were active creative partners in the commissioning of new pieces which were vehicles for collaborations with orchestras and the ensemble. Composers Jennifer Higdon, William Bolcom, and Chris Brubeck each contributed substantial pieces leading the trio to performances with orchestras across the country including the Philadelphia Orchestra, Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra, Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, Baltimore Symphony Orchestra at their home venue and for their 2013 Carnegie Hall appearance, Chicago Symphony Orchestra at Ravinia, Wheeling Symphony, Brevard Festival Orchestra, among many others. The Trio also recorded Higdon’s Concerto 4-3 with the Forth Worth Symphony Orchestra and appears on their 2012 Take Six release.

DePue’s earliest introduction to the stage came through performances with his family. He is the youngest of four brothers—all violinists—who make up The DePue Brothers Band, an eclectic ensemble that blends bluegrass and classical music, with elements of jazz, blues and rock. DePue graduated in 2002 from the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia, where he served as concertmaster of the Curtis Symphony Orchestra and studied with renowned violinists Ida Kavafian and Jaime Laredo. He is a former member of the Philadelphia Orchestra where he performed in the first violin section for five years. He performs on a violin made by Giuseppe Rocca of Turin, Italy, in 1846.

    Putting on my game face as I prepped to sing with the incredible Maestro Miguel "Miguelvis" DeHoyos this past Saturday. It was a small glimpse of what is to come. There are conversations of us recording a tribute album to our beloved Fiddler, and which pieces would be really fitting for such a project. Please keep up as we go, your support along the way will be GREATLY appreciated. This is so close to our hearts, and an inspiration to keep us both pressing on and stretching and growing in new ways. Working with a world class musician who also happens to be one of my husband's favorite people is truly an honor for me. Alex will always be with us both, absolutely no doubt about that. ❤️Now, on to finish my speech introducing Alex for his induction into the San Diego Music Hall of Fame this Friday, and practicing my small part in a musical tribute. ❤️ Love, Mrs. Fiddler #AlexDePue #Legendary #NeverForgotten #Beloved #MiguelDeHoyos ...

    Wow, a lot of similarities to Alex, he definitely used the violin to think things through. Love this. ❤️Albert Einstein, began his violin lessons at age 6. While doing poorly in school, Pauline Koch, his mother, consistently took him to weekly violin lessons and encouraged his daily practice.His favorite pieces of music were Mozart’s Violin Sonatas. Reportedly, he repeated K. 296 (in C) more than any other.This was also the first work I ever performed for a live audience, and thereby has a deep essence for me. That was at @meritmusic in the Chicago loop, and remains my favorite of Mozart’s sonatas, for any instrument.Einstein carried his violin with him wherever he traveled to lecture, because he also recognized and acknowledged how music sharpens the mind.His last girlfriend, Joanna Fantova wrote in her journal that Einstein would stay up late, playing his violin in the kitchen with his book of equations open on the table, and pencil in his bow hand.“He played, staring towards the ceiling. Then, suddenly in the middle of playing, he would shout excitedly, ‘I’ve got it!’” — Joanna Fantova#theviolindoctor #violin #violinplayer #einstein #alberteinstein #physicist #neildegrassetyson #violín #violinmusic #violinshow #violinsolo ...
