About Ariel Horowitz
Hailed by the Washington Post as "sweetly lyrical", violinist and activist Ariel Horowitz cannot remember life before both loving music and advocating it as a medium for global healing. Prizewinner of the Stulberg and Irving M. Klein International String Competitions (4th Prize, 2015), as well as The Juilliard School's violin concerto competition, The Violin Channel praised Ariel's artistic energy: "If they gave out prizes for attitude...we think we may have found the Olympic champion." Ariel recently received her Bachelor of Music degree from The Juilliard School as a student of Itzhak Perlman and Catherine Cho, and has entered graduate studies this fall at the Yale School of Music under the tutelage of Ani Kavafian. She is the recipient of the 2017 Robert Sherman Award for Music Education and Community Outreach and the 2017 Salon de Virtuosi Career Development Prize.
Ariel's concerto appearances include performances with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, Neue Philharmonie Westphalia, Raanana Symphonette, Lincoln Center Chamber Orchestra, Terre Haute Symphony Orchestra, Carmel Symphony Orchestra, New Albany Symphony Orchestra, Chamber Orchestra Kremlin, and the Doctor's Orchestral Society of New York. She has also performed as a recitalist across the United States, Europe, Israel, and South America, performing masterworks of the classical canon in partnership and dialogue with her original multimedia and cross-genre compositions.
