About the Artist

Noelle started playing the violin at the age of 9 in a public school program. After participating in the local community orchestra throughout elementary and middle school, she became a member of the Claremont Young Musicians Orchestra (CYMO), where she was exposed to an expansive list of symphonic repertoire, coachings led by musicians of the Los Angeles Philharmonic, and a rehearsal with Gustavo Dudamel in 2015. Since continuing her violin studies as a double major in Music Studies and the History of Art and Architecture at UCSB, she has participated in the music department’s chamber ensembles as a student of Ertan Torgul. Receiving masterclasses from the Danish String Quartet in 2019 and Sheryl Staples of the NY Philharmonic in 2020, she extends her gratitude to the UCSB string faculty and musicologists, her parents, and friends. Noelle will graduate from UCSB with a double-major in Music and the History of Art in June of 2021 and will pursue an M.A. at New York University’s Institute of Fine Arts in the Fall.
