Eugenia Choi (e.choi), Violin

Biography

Described by the world's press as "a sensational force" (La République, France), and
"technical virtuoso" (Berliner
Morgenpost

Choi
regularly performs at major performing arts centers such as Lincoln
Center, Carnegie Hall, Kimmel Center's Verizon Hall, Symphony Hall in Boston,
Kravis Center, Vienna Saal-Mozarteum, Tokyo International Forum, Palais de
Fontainebleau in France, and the most adventurous venue imaginable--a
performance of solo Bach
on the glaciers of the Norwegian Arctic, as captured
by National Geographic. Eugenia was recently invited to perform and represent
the arts as part of an American delegation with President Carter, Madeleine Albright,
Ted Turner, and the CEOs/founders of Google, DuPont, Monsanto, and eBay. Highlights
included performing at the Nobel Peace Prize Hall on the 1714 General Kydd-ex-Itzhak
Perlman Stradivarius violin given to Eugenia for the occasion.

Miss Choi has performed as soloist with orchestras in Europe,
Asia, North and South Americas, and featured on national broadcasts for CBC,
BBC, Sender Freies Berlin,
Bravo! A particular highlight has been performances at Juilliard for Elliott
Carter of his own solo violin work. Miss Choi often collaborates with a wide
range of artists and institutions, including American soprano Dawn Upshaw, tap
artist Savion Glover, Lincoln Center's "Great Performances" series, and with Ondine
Musique in France.

Born in Canada
from Korean heritage, Miss Choi began violin studies at the age of three. Recipient
of the C.V. Starr Foundation Fellowship at the Juilliard School,
she received her Doctorate, Masters, Bachelors, and Pre-College degrees under
Joel Smirnoff and Sally Thomas. Eugenia is also an alumna of Dartmouth College
