Violinist Tessa Lark is one of the most captivating artistic voices of our time, consistently praised by critics and audiences for her astounding range of sounds, technical agility, and musical elegance. In 2020 she was nominated for a GRAMMY for SKY, a bluegrass-inspired violin concerto written for her by Michael Torke. Other recent honors include a 2018 Borletti-Buitoni Trust Fellowship and a 2016 Avery Fisher Career Grant.  A budding superstar in the classical realm, she is also a highly acclaimed fiddler in the tradition of her native Kentucky, delighting audiences with programming that includes Appalachian and bluegrass music and inspiring composers to write for her.

Highlights of her 2021-22 season included debuts at London’s Wigmore Hall and Carnegie Hall’s Zankel Hall.  She made her debut with City of Birmingham Symphony and appeared in numerous concerto engagements including the world premiere of Michael Schachter’s violin concerto, Cycles of Life.  Tessa is Artistic Director of Musical Masterworks, a chamber music presenter in Connecticut and plays a ca. 1600 G.P. Maggini violin on loan from an anonymous donor through the Stradivari Society of Chicago.
