    Position: Adjunct Instructor of Music - Horn

    Campus Phone: 865.471.3331

    Campus Box: 72048

    Mr. W. Mark Harrell is adjunct horn professor at Carson-Newman University. He is a seventh generation native of Anderson County in East Tennessee. After graduation from the University of Tennessee at Knoxville in 1988 with a degree in music performance, Mr. Harrell spent several years in Boston continuing his studies with Charles Kavalovski of the Boston Symphony Orchestra. While in New England he performed widely as an orchestral musician and also came in contact with the music of composers John Harbison in Boston and Chris DiBlasio in New York.

    As a composer Mr. Harrell is primarily self-taught, learning the craft of structure and orchestration from study and practical experience as an active performer. “The language of music is spoken most fluently by those composers who immerse themselves within it, the accent being developed by the composer as his alone. His voice must be comprehensible without being overly simplistic.” Mr. Harrell’s works have been performed widely by a variety of artists. Recent commissions and performances have been given by ensembles such as: Appalachian Ballet, Brasswind Quintet, Carson-Newman University Symphonic Band, East Tennessee State University Wind Ensemble, East Tennessee Youth Wind Ensemble, Knoxville Chamber Orchestra, Knoxville Symphony Orchestra, Mountain Empire Wind Ensemble, Oak Ridge Symphony Orchestra, Olympia Symphony Orchestra, Partes Choir of Obninsk (Russia), Slovak State Philharmonic of Kosice (Slovakia), Tennessee Secondary Schools Band Directors Association.

    Mr. Harrell lives in Knoxville, Tennessee and serves as the third hornist with the Knoxville Symphony Orchestra. Mr. Harrell holds a Tennessee teacher’s license and teaches instrumental music in the public schools of Sevier County. He has also taught at East Tennessee State University and Maryville College.

    Favorite TV Show: I don't really have a favorite TV show...I am a channel surfer!  However, my all-time favorite movie is The Birdcage.

    Favorite Food: The All American Hamburger with Warm Apple Crisp!

    Interesting Fact or Talent: I am from west Michigan (a northerner) and over the years I have owned and operated three different businesses (a bed and breakfast, gift and home decor store, and office supply store).  I am the biggest beach junkie!  I enjoy spending hours combing the beach for shells to support my favorite past art!  I am also a coquillage artist!

    If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go? I have been very fortunate to have had the opportunity to travel to some of my dream destinations (Japan, Hong Kong, Singapore, Greece and the Greek Islands, Turkey, Canada and many memorable trips to Mexico).  Next stop...Barcelona, Spain or the fabulous beaches of the French Polynesian.
