A guest master class in violin and chamber music with Sandy Yamamoto in Stull Recital Hall.
Violinist Sandy Yamamoto has dazzled audiences in concert performances around the globe for the past three decades as a soloist and as a member of the Miró Quartet. The New York Times describes her performance as playing with “explosive vigor and technical finesse.” With the Quartet, she performed on the major concert stages of the world, regularly concertizing in North America, South America, Europe and Asia. She was a recipient of the Naumburg Chamber Music and Cleveland Quartet Awards, won First Prize at the Banff International String Quartet Competition and was one of the first chamber musicians to be awarded an Avery Fisher Career Grant. Currently, she is the Professor of Practice in Violin Performance at the Butler School of Music at the University of Texas at Austin and was the recipient of the 2016 Butler School of Music Teaching Excellence Award. In the summers, she teaches at the Green Mountain Chamber Music Festival and performs regularly at the Orcas Island Chamber Music Festival. Ms. Yamamoto often performs with the East Coast Chamber Orchestra as well as the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra. When she is not busy teaching and performing, she enjoys spending time with her husband, Daniel, her two sons, Adrian and Brian, her cat, Poko, and her gerbils, Sawyer and Silas.
