Since her solo debut with the Manhattan Chamber Symphony at age 17, violist Victoria Voronyansky has distinguished herself as a recitalist, chamber musician, educator, and published author. She has appeared in major concert halls throughout United States, Israel, and Europe including Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, 92nd Street Y, Aspen Music Festival, and the Phillips Collection in Washington DC. Her performance of works by J.S. Bach was broadcast live on the National Radio of Finland, and solo performance with the Manhattan Chamber Symphony of Hans Sitt’s Concertpiece was broadcast on WQXR radio in New York as part of Robert Sherman’s Young Artists Showcase. She was also featured on the Israeli television as part of the Pinchas Zukerman Performance Program, and in broadcasts on National Public Radio.
As a founding member of the Acacia String Quartet, Victoria was selected by Isaac Stern for a performance and workshop at Carnegie Hall, won The Bärenreiter Urtext Prize in the Young Concert Artists International Auditions, and won the Young Artists International Competition. She performed with the International Sejong Soloists, in the Mostly Mozart series at Lincoln Center, and at Taos Chamber Music Festival.
Deeply involved in the field of education, Victoria designed and taught an innovative "Recording Project" course at the Juilliard School, where she has also given numerous presentations on topics ranging from injury prevention to physics of sound. This work led to publication of her writings in the Journal of the American Viola Society. In addition to the Juilliard School, Victoria served as a member of the viola faculty at Mannes College of Music, at The Perlman Music Program, and viola faculty and artist in residence at Temple University Esther Boyer College of Music and Dance.
Victoria was a recipient of the Edward J. Noble Educational Fellowship and was presented with Blanchette Rockefeller and Henry Alderman Trust Awards. Victoria studied viola with Heidi Castleman, Cynthia Phelps, and Pinchas Zuckerman, and chamber music with members of the Juilliard and American String Quartets, Isidore Cohen, Felix Galimir, David Geber, and Isaac Stern. She holds a Master of Music degree from the Juilliard School.
