New York City based violist Georgina Rossi has enjoyed performing in many different settings and countries. Most recently, she played in various chamber music concerts as a participant of the Sarasota Music Festival, where she also served as Principal Viola of the Festival Orchestra, under the baton of Larry Rahcleff. She joined the viola section of the Binghamton Philharmonic in 2016.
In her native country, she has served several times as substitute violist with the Chile Chamber Orchestra (Orquesta de Cámara de Chile) in Santiago, under the baton of Juan Pablo Izquierdo. Other conductors she has worked with include Kurt Masur, Kent Tritle, George Manahan, Alan Gilbert, Fabio Luisi, Hugh Wolff, and Nicholas McGegan. Ms. Rossi has been Principal Viola of the Manhattan School of Music Philharmonia, the Manhattan School of Music Symphony, and the Interlochen Arts Academy Orchestra. Playing as a member of these ensembles has taken her to the stages of Carnegie Hall, the Kennedy Center, and the Cathedral of St. John the Divine.
Early in her career, the Chilean government awarded her a national arts grant to fund her studies abroad, allowing her to graduate from Interlochen Arts Academy. She holds a Bachelor’s degree in Viola Performance from the Manhattan School of Music, where she studied with Karen Dreyfus and Daniel Avshalomov, and where she was a recipient of the Margaret Enoch Scholarship.
Georgina is currently pursuing a Master’s degree at The Juilliard School, where she is a student of Roger Tapping.
To provide perspective, she enjoys oil painting.
