I am a freelance violinist, violist, and Irish fiddler performing in NYC. I received a masters of music in violin performance from the Royal College of Music in London, UK, and a bachelor of music in violin performance from Northwestern University in Chicago. I love playing chamber music, collaborating with composers on new pieces, playing solo Bach, and playing Irish folk music. I also perform with lots of orchestras around the city.

Traditional Repertoire

-string quartets (most recently playing a concert of Piazzolla, Kodaly, Hugo Wolf, and Danish folk music)
-new music (premieres and recent compositions)
-duos (going on tour with my violin-viola duo, playing pieces by Martinu, George Benjamin, Rebecca Clarke and others)
-Irish traditional folk music
