    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.

    What do you love most about Carson-Newman? I love the family atmosphere that C-N offers. I loved that Professors took the time to get to know students for who they were outside the classroom.

    What is your favorite Carson-Newman tradition? My favorite traditions were the ones that challenged me to get out and help the community around me like Operation Inasmuch and our SPOTS trips. These gave me the opportunity to give back by helping those in need, most of the time right in our backyard!

    What is your most memorable college experience? My favorite experience at C-N was competing in our Intramural Sports and winning a few championship t-shirts along the way! The Intramural program gave me the opportunity to stay active and competitive even though I no longer played organized sports.

    What advice do you offer to students regarding college? Visit multiple schools and get a feel for all kinds of different campus environments. You are going to be spending the next four years of your life at the school you choose so make sure you pick the one that fits you best! Also, listen to your gut when you visit those schools, it will let you know if it is a good fit or not.

    If you get a three-day weekend, how do you spend it? Many of my weekends are spent with friends and family and the rare three-day weekend only adds more time for fun and games. My friends and I love game nights so we are always looking for more time to beat each other at our favorite board games.
