Violinist Rachel Lee Priday, acclaimed for her beautiful tone, riveting stage presence, and “irresistible panache” (Chicago Tribune), has appeared as soloist with major international orchestras, including the Chicago, St. Louis, Houston, and Seattle Symphony Orchestras, the Boston Pops, and the Berlin Staatskapelle.
Combining a fierce intelligence with an imaginative curiosity, her wide-ranging repertoire and eclectic programming reflect a deep fascination with literary and cultural narratives, as an artist who seeks contemporary resonances with the masterworks of the past.
Upcoming highlights include Prokofiev’s Violin Concerto No. 1 with the Buffalo Philharmonic and Leon Botstein, recital appearances at the Sarasota Opera House and Dame Myra Hess Memorial Series at the Chicago Cultural Center, as well as premiere performances of a new violin and piano work by 2014 Pulitzer Prize finalist Christopher Cerrone.
