Tricia Park

 Tricia Park, violin

Praised by critics for her "astounding virtuosic gifts" (Boston Herald) and "achingly pure sound" (The Toronto Star), concert violinist Tricia Park enjoys a diverse and eclectic career as soloist, chamber musician, concertmaster, educator, and festival curator.

Tricia is a recipient of the prestigious Avery Fisher Career Grant. Since appearing in her first orchestral engagement at age 13 with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, she has performed with numerous orchestras, including the English Chamber Orchestra, St. Paul Chamber Orchestra, Frankfurt Radio Symphony Orchestra and the Montreal, Dallas, Cincinnati, KBS (Korea) and Seattle Symphonies.

Recent season highlights include a performance of Lalo Symphonie Espagnole with the South Bend Symphony; a recital at Carnegie Hall with Ensemble Peripherie; a performance of the Brahms Double Concerto with the Notre Dame Symphony; a collaborative performance with violist Daniel Avshalomov; and a recording of works by Per Bloland on the TZADIK label with the ECCE Ensemble. Tricia is also the founding member of the Gesualdo Quartet, the new Quartet-in-Residence at the University of Notre Dame.

Tricia maintains an ongoing interest in new music and non-classical styles. She has performed with jazz musicians Matt Ulery and Zach Brock, has appeared with the rock band, Another Dead Clown and performs duo violin recitals with fiddler-violinist, Taylor Morris.

Tricia is the co-founder and artistic director of MusicIC, a summer chamber music festival that takes place in downtown Iowa City, Iowa. MusicIC presents free concerts and events focus on music for small ensembles inspired by works of literature, both prose and poetry.

Tricia received her Bachelor and Master of Music from the Juilliard School where she studied with Dorothy DeLay. She has studied and performed chamber music with Felix Galimir, Pinchas Zukerman, Cho-Liang Lin, Michael Tree, Gary Hoffman, Paul Neubauer, Robert McDonald, and members of the American, Guarneri, Juilliard, and Orion String Quartets as well as the new music group, Eighth Blackbird.

We welcome Tricia Park to her first appearance on the Historical Piano Concerts Series.
