Geneva Lewis - Biography

New Zealand-born Geneva Lewis (23) grew up in California and made her solo debut at age 11 with the Pasadena Symphony Orchestra. She studied at the New England Conservatory where she is now an Artist Diploma candidate studying with Miriam Fried.

Widely praised for the purity and honesty of her playing, she has performed with orchestras across the world including recent and forthcoming appearances with Orpheus Chamber Orchestra, Auckland Philharmonia and Sarasota Orchestra.

In recital, recent and upcoming highlights include performances at Wigmore Hall, Tippet Rise and Kravis Center among others. Her love of musical collaboration and playing chamber music involve her spending summers at the Marlboro Music Festival and Ravinia Steans Music Institute.

She performs on the “Joachim-Ma” Stradivarius c. 1714, generously loaned by the New England Conservatory. As well as her BBT Award, she received a 2021 Avery Fisher Career Grant and was Grand Prize winner of the 2020 Concert Artists Guild Competition.
