Solo violin music by Bach, Baltzar, Swidler, Telemann, and Westhoff

LAMF artistic advisor Chloe Fedor returns to our winter series– this time alone with her violin. She brings a solo program featuring masterpieces from the baroque era alongside contemporary pieces drawing on the historical context of her instrument. An intimate program not to be missed!

This program is the third cycle of the Lakes Area Music Festival's Winter Series of chamber music in Minneapolis (Woman's Club of Minneapolis) and Brainerd.

Violinist Chloe Fedor is known for her “lovely, plush, seductive tone” (New York Times) and lauded for her “soulful, virtuosic” playing and “impeccable technical control” (Opera News). Chloe is artistic advisor and concertmaster of Baroque programming at Lakes Area Music Festival, co-concertmaster of Lyra Baroque Orchestra, a member of the Grammy award-winning ensemble Apollo’s Fire, and frequent soloist with Four Nations Ensemble. She also appears with The American Classical Orchestra, Carmel Bach Festival, The English Concert, Handel and Haydn Society, Oregon Bach Festival, Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra, Seraphic Fire, Staunton Music Festival, and Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra. Chloe has had recurring guest concertmaster roles with Amor Artis, Bach Vespers at Holy Trinity, Ensemble Altera, New York Baroque Incorporated, and principal roles in Early Music New York,  The Sebastians, and Trinity Wall-Street Baroque Orchestra.

Chloe earned her Bachelor of Music degree from the Eastman School of Music and two Master of Music degrees from The Juilliard School, both in modern violin and historical performance. She was a concerto competition winner at both alma maters as well as a laureate of the Performer’s Certificate from The Eastman School and the Juilliard Career Fellowship Grant from The Juilliard School. Her principal teachers include Charles Castleman, Ron Copes, Monica Huggett and Cynthia Roberts.

Chloe’s summer festival appearances include the BBC Proms (England), Caramoor, Carmel Bach Festival, Edinburgh International Festival (Scotland), Festival Dans le Jardins de William Christie (France), Oregon Bach Festival, Ravinia, Sarasota Music Festival, Schleswig-Holstein Musik Festival (Germany), Spoleto USA, Tanglewood Music Festival, and Utrecht Early Music Festival (The Netherlands). In 2018, Chloe was featured on Broadway as the onstage violinist in the Shakespeare’s Globe production of “Farinelli and the King,” starring Sir Mark Rylance and Iestyn Davies. Chloe can be heard on ACRONYM’s 2020 album Cantica Obsoleta, featuring previously unrecorded 17th century works.

All LAMF activities are made possible by the voters of Minnesota through grants from the Five Wings Arts Council and Minnesota State Arts Board thanks to a legislative appropriation from the Arts & Cultural Heritage Fund.
