Shenson Chamber Music Concert: Catherine Manoukian

Artistic Director: Gilan Tocco Corn

Catherine Manoukian makes her Washington, D.C. debut.

Violinist Catherine Manoukian has been praised for her innate musicality and imaginative artistry on orchestral, chamber music, and recital stages. She made her first stage appearance at the age of four, and began her professional career at age 12, with an orchestral debut with the Vancouver Symphony.

Ms. Manoukian’s impressive list of accomplishments includes guest performances with many major North American and international orchestras. As a recitalist, she has appeared on major stages from New York to Osaka, and as a chamber musician at many festivals. She has collaborated with such esteemed conductors as Mario Bernardi, Jukka-Pekka Saraste, Keith Lockhart, Roy Goodman, Peter Oundjian, and Stefan Solyom. From 1994–2000, Catherine studied with the late violin pedagogue Dorothy DeLay in New York City.

She recently recorded the Brahms Violin and Double Concertos with the Helsingborg Symphony and cellist Jakob Koranyi, with an anticipated release of early 2017. For Manoukian’s complete biography, extensive discography, and upcoming performances, please visit her website.
