Praised by the New York Times for her “splendid playing”, Philadelphian Natalie Kress, violin, has already begun a successful career as both a modern and baroque violinist; highlights of which include three summers as a Violin Fellow at the Tanglewood Music Center where she received the 2012 Jules C. Reiner Violin Prize; as well as performing in Carnegie Hall as concertmaster of the New York Youth Symphony in 2010. As a baroque violinist she has performed at the Boston Early Music Festival, Amherst Early Music Festival, and the International Baroque Institute of Longy working with Aisslinn Nosky, Jeanne Lamon, and Robert Mealy. She studied modern violin with Soovin Kim at Stony Brook University from 2008-2014 and baroque violin with Arthur Haas and Beth Wenstrom from 2009 to present. As a teacher Natalie maintains a devoted studio of over 30 violin students on Long Island and in Vermont, coaches the violin sections of the Long Island Youth Orchestra, and runs the violin and music programs for children at the Port Jefferson Village Center. Natalie is currently artistic director of Three Village Chamber Players, which organizes free classical concerts at numerous venues around Long Island and gives educational outreach performances in local schools.
