Biography
Nadia Sirota

Violist Nadia Sirota’s varied career spans solo performances, chamber music, curation, and broadcasting. In all branches of her artistic life she aims to open classical music up to a broader audience. Ms. Sirota’s singular sound and expressive execution have served as muse to dozens of composers, including Nico Muhly, Bryce Dessner, Missy Mazzoli, Daníel Bjarnason, Judd Greenstein, Marcos Balter, and David Lang.

Since 2018, Ms. Sirota has been the New York Philharmonic’s Marie-Josée Kravis Creative Partner, a position created for her. In this role, she helped develop and hosts two series: Kravis Nightcap and GRoW @ Annenberg Sound ON, the latter of which she also curates. In addition, she works with the Philharmonic on contemporary-music initiatives across the organization.

As a soloist, Ms. Sirota has appeared with acclaimed orchestras around the world, including the Detroit Symphony, Singapore Symphony, Colorado Symphony, National Arts Centre and Spanish National orchestras, and the Orchestre national d’Île-de-France. She has released four solo albums of commissioned music: first things first (2009), Baroque (2013), Keep In Touch (2016), and Tessellatum (2017). Ms. Sirota is a member of Bedroom Community, a collective of musically diverse artists who work and collaborate at Reykjavík’s Greenhouse Studios. She has also lent her sound to recording and concert projects by such artists as The National, David Bowie, John Legend, and Björk.

Nadia Sirota is a member of the acclaimed chamber sextet yMusic, whose virtuosic execution and unique configuration have attracted high profile collaborators, including Paul Simon, Ben Folds, and Anohni, and have inspired an expanding repertoire of original works by prominent composers such as Andrew Norman, Caroline Shaw, and Chris Thile.

Ms. Sirota is the creator and host of Living Music with Nadia Sirota, a new podcast and concert series that demystifies classical music. She also serves as creative associate at The Juilliard School and as artist-in-residence at UCLA’s Center for the Art of Performance.

Ms. Sirota won a 2015 Peabody Award, broadcasting’s highest honor, for her podcast Meet the Composer, which deftly profiled some of the most interesting musical thinkers living today. She also received the ASCAP Deems Taylor Award for her work in radio, and Southern Methodist University’s Meadows Prize, awarded to pioneering artists and scholars with an emerging international profile. She sits on the board of directors of Chamber Music America, the national service organization for ensemble music professionals. Nadia Sirota received her undergraduate and master’s degrees from The Juilliard School, where she studied with Heidi Castleman, Misha Amory, and Hsin-Yun Huang.
