Nadia Sirota

Violist Nadia Sirota’s 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.

As a soloist, 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 Reykjavik’s Greenhouse Studios. She has also lent her sound to recording and concert projects by such artists as The National, David Bowie, and Björk.

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

Since 2018 Nadia Sirota has served as the New York Philharmonic’s Kravis Creative Partner, a position created for her. In this role, she helped create and hosts two series: Kravis Nightcap and Sound ON, the latter of which she also curates, and works on contemporary music initiatives across the organization. She also serves as creative associate at The Juilliard School and as artist-in-residence at UCLA’s Center for the Art of Performance. She is the co-founder of Eclipse Projects, an independent arts management and production company based in Los Angeles.

Sirota won a 2015 Peabody Award for her podcast Meet the Composer, which she hosted and co-created. 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 emerging international profiles. 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.
