Violin Performance
Beth fell in love with the violin at the age of seven and has studied and performed music for over 40 years, and has a beautifully expressive way of playing her music, demonstrating the unwavering love of the instrument ever since. Originally from El Cajon, CA, Beth majored in Music Performance at San Diego State University, playing both violin and viola. She was fortunate to have had the opportunity to study violin/viola from: Anthony Porto, Oxana Sourine, Frank Almond, Klara Fenyo Bahcall and Ferenc Fenyo, of the Hungarian National Opera and Michael Tseitlin, Professor at the Moscow Conservatory. She worked in recording studios while still in high school and continued to freelance professionally all her life for chamber groups, orchestras, string quartets, and studio work. She moved to Pulaski, Wisconsin in 2003 then Door County. She later attended University of Wisconsin Oshkosh and completed her Bachelor of Music in Violin Performance and Music Composition after a 37-year hiatus! She has performed in California, New York, Arizona, New Mexico, South Carolina, Missouri, Oregon and Wisconsin. Beth performs a variety of violin genres starting with her favorite, true classical solo repertoire, but also loves gypsy-folk and Irish fiddlin’. She creates her own back up orchestra to accompany her solo violin or viola. Her latest concert productions include multimedia slideshows to compliment her own pieces.
