Host / Curator

Violist Nadia Sirota’s varied career spans solo performances, chamber music, producing, curation, and broadcasting. In all branches of her artistic life she aims to open classical music up to a broader audience. Her singular sound and expressive execution have served as muse to dozens of composers, including Nico Muhly, Missy Mazzoli, 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 concert series: Kravis Nightcap and 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, and she has released four albums of commissioned music: first things first (2009), Baroque (2013), Keep In Touch (2016), and Tessellatum (2017). She 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, and Björk.

Ms. Sirota is a member of the acclaimed chamber sextet yMusic, whose virtuosic execution and unique configuration have attracted collaborators ranging from Paul Simon to Bill T. Jones to Caroline Shaw. She serves as creative associate at The Juilliard School and as artist-in-residence at UCLA’s Center for the Art of Performance. Ms. Sirota is a co-founder of Eclipse Projects, an independent arts management and production company based in Los Angeles.

Nadia Sirota won a 2015 Peabody Award for her podcast Meet the Composer, which she hosted and co-created. She 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 received her undergraduate and master’s degrees from The Juilliard School, where she studied with Heidi Castleman, Misha Amory, and Hsin-Yun Huang.
