Zina Schiff, Violin
Avlana Eisenberg, Conductor
Zina Schiff has been described by the New York Times as an instrumentalist of “Luscious high voltage…vintage Heifetz.” The comparison to the legendary Heifetz is apt, as Schiff is a Heifetz protégée, who has dazzled audiences on four continents with her special blend of passion, poetry and communicative power. Zina was chosen as a Top Ten College Winner by Glamour Magazine during her senior year at the University of California at Berkeley and honored as a Distinguished Alumna by Louisiana State University in Shreveport, where she earned her Master’s Degree in Liberal Arts. Recipient of the Young Musicians’ Foundation Debut Award, the San Francisco Symphony Foundation Award, and a grant from the Martha Baird Rockefeller Fund for Music, she was named an Outstanding Young Artist by Musical America.
Music Director of the Boston Chamber Symphony, Avlana Eisenberg has conducted orchestras throughout the United States and in Austria, Germany, France, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Scotland, Bulgaria, and Spain. She is active as a guest conductor, recently performing with the Lancaster Festival Orchestra and the Salzburg Chamber Soloists. She has also conducted the San Diego Ballet Orchestra, the Stanford Symphony, the New Symphony Orchestra, and musicians of the Columbus Symphony.
