Victoria enjoys performing in various groups and settings, from small string ensembles to symphony orchestras. She first began with piano at age 8 with the esteemed Faina Kofman (New England Conservatory) after she was filled with envy watching her older sister progress rapidly when taking piano lessons.
She then added violin at age 11 to expand her portfolio. Victoria has studied violin with George Maxman (former violinist, Boston Symphony Orchestra), Dr. Maxim Korn (former Asst. Concertmaster, Thayer Symphony Orchestra) and Dr. Sahran Kim (former violin instructor, Eastman School of Music). She also received solfege and theory training from the brilliant Alla Elana Cohen (New England Conservatory, Berklee College of Music).
During her undergraduate studies at the University of Rochester, Victoria served as Concertmaster of its Chamber Orchestra from 2009-2010. She has performed throughout the U.S. northeast region and internationally in Canada, Chile, France, and Germany. She is currently based in Queens.
