Violinist Anais Feller has only played the violin for about 11 years, but if you ever have the privilege of hearing her play, you’ll think you’re listening to 20+ years of musical experience. At 16 years old, Feller is one of the youngest violinists to appear as a Performance Today Young Artist in Residence. Presently very active, Feller regularly participates in summer academies in Europe and the U.S. and various chamber music festivals such as the Laguna Beach Music Festival in California and the Basically Beethoven Festival in Dallas, Texas. As a soloist, she has been seen with such orchestras as The Plano Symphony.
Feller won a gold medal at the Burgos International Festival Competition in Spain in 2019 and won second prize at The Southern California Philharmonic Young Artist Competition in 2020. She also devotes her time to performing at charity events such as the Christmas charity concerts for the Brain Trauma Foundation and a fundraising concert for Hurricane Harvey victims. Currently, Feller is enrolled in the pre-college program at the Colburn School of Music in Los Angeles, California, where she studies violin performance with teacher Martin Beaver.
When she’s not playing or practicing her violin, you’d likely find Feller in a dance class, as she is also a talented ballerina and contemporary dancer. She has performed in numerous productions of the Nutcracker with both the Dallas Ballet Center in Texas and Ballet Arte in Del Mar, California.
Feller appears in these recordings with collaborative pianist Alice Yoo.
