Jennifer Choi

Performer's Website

Jennifer Choi has charted a career that breaks through the conventional boundaries of solo violin, chamber music, and the art of creative improvisation. The New York Times has described her as a player with"brilliance and command," and the Seattle Weekly applauded her performance with the words "intense, spectacularly virtuosic play." As a soloist, she has performed with the Oregon Symphony, the Columbia Symphony Orchestra, the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra, the Portland Youth Philharmonic, and the String Orchestra of New York City (SONYC), among others. As a recitalist and chamber musician, she has performed in venues worldwide like the Library of Congress in Washington D.C., Alice Tully Hall in New York, the Mozartsalle in Vienna, and the RAI National Radio in Rome. In 2000, she was ‘Winner’ of the Artist International Award, leading to a debut recital in Weill Hall at Carnegie Hall.

As a chamber musician, Jennifer has appeared at the Ravinia Festival, Caramoor Music Festival, and Barge Music. She has also performed at the Santa Fe and La Jolla Chamber Music Festivals, Banff Centre for the Arts, the Aspen Music Festival, and has collaborated with artists such as Fred Sherry, Stephen Drury, members of Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, and the Corigliano and Miró String Quartets. In 1996, she won Grand Prize at the Fischoff Competition and the Coleman-Barstow Award at the Coleman Chamber Music Competition.

Jennifer resides in New York City and is a prominent fixture in its new music scene. She is regularly invited to premiere and record works by contemporary composers such as John Zorn, Christian Wolfe, Lee Hyla, Neil Rolnick, and Randall Woolf who recently wrote a work for violin and video dedicated to Jennifer. Highlight appearances have included performances at Columbia University’s Miller Theater, the 'Interpretations Series' at Merkin Hall, and at the Guggenheim Museum where she gave the World Premiere of ‘Goetia’ for solo violin by John Zorn.
