Masterclass – Lina Bahn, Violin

Schoenberg Hall

Join the UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music for a masterclass with renowned violinist Lina Bahn.

Lina Bahn is a violinist with a keen interest in collaborative and innovative repertoire, and has been called “brilliant” and “lyrical” by the Washington Post. Her publication of Mean Fiddle Summer (Naxos Label) was hailed, “From start to finish, the violinist demonstrates her adroit technical facility, kaleidoscope of colors, and consummate musical taste.” She is a dedicated collaborator and educator, currently the Chair and faculty at the Thornton School of Music at USC, and former posts include those at Colorado University, Dickinson College, and Indiana University.

Recent chamber music collaborations include those with Matt Haimovitz, Kathleen Tagg, and David Krakauer at the Oregon Bach Festival, and as a guest performer with the Takacs Quartet at Strathmore Hall, Concertgabouw Hall, Carnegie Hall, the Mariinsky Theater, and Queen Elizabeth Hall. Lina was a member of the award-winning Corigliano Quartet, lauded by the Strad Magazine, and whose Naxos recording was selected by The New Yorker magazine as one of the year’s “Best 10 Recordings”. She is also a founding member of MoVE (Modern Violin Ensemble), a group of four violinists dedicated to social change, and served as the Executive Director and violinist with the VERGE Ensemble in residency at the Corcoran Gallery of Art.  Her degrees are from the Juilliard School as a student of Dorothy DeLay, MM (University of Michigan) with Paul Kantor, DM (Indiana University) with Paul Biss and  Miriam Fried, and early training was under the guidance of Almita and Roland Vamos. 




This event is made possible by the David and Irmgard Dobrow Fund. Classical music was a passion of the Dobrows, who established a generous endowment at The UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music to make programs like this possible. We are proud to celebrate this program as part of the 2023 - 24 Dobrow Series.
