In the past year he has performed with classical groups including Decoda, Ensemble ACJW, and The Con Brio Ensemble. He has also collaborated with rock bands including Vampire Weekend, FUN., and Cults. A Nashville native, Hamilton has appeared at the Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Olympic, and Yellow Barn music festivals. In 2009, he received his Master of Music from The Juilliard School, where he was a student of Timothy Eddy.
