Bio

Praised for her “powerful command and nuanced facility”, Violetta Maria Norrie is a harpist, performance artist, and improviser of diverse range and ability. She began playing the harp at the age of 6, after falling in love with the instrument at a Renaissance Faire. Since then she has performed orchestral, solo, and chamber music at venues such as Carnegie Hall, Merkin Recital Hall and Symphony Space. She as performed with ensembles throughout the NY tri-state area including the Park Avenue Chamber Symphony and Opera Theatre of Montclair. Violetta has been featured on The Today Show with Megyn Kelly and Kathy Lee, MTV's Silent Library, and the Harmony ad campaign for Emirates Airlines.

In addition to her classical repertoire, Violetta is interested in contemporary music, jazz, poetry, performance art, and improvisation. She regularly performs experimental music and improvisations as a solo artist and as a member of DUO for Saxophone and Harp. She is a passionate advocate for those underrepresented in the arts, and seeks to combat their erasure through inclusive programming and the launch of her all-femme New York Concert Series "Venus Flytrap".

Violetta earned her Bachelor of Music degree from the Manhattan School of Music and her Masters degree from Yale School of Music. She spent her junior year studying abroad at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique de Paris with Isabelle Moretti and Sivan Magen and has studied privately with Frances Duffy and Emmanuel Ceysson.
