Violinist Amelia Sie explores the shifting language of Italian violin virtuosity from the 1600–1800s, highlighting the transition from use of ornamentation to practice of technical dexterity. This program features music from Marini to Paganini.

Based in New York City, Amelia Sie is a virtuosic and adventurous performer on modern and Baroque violin. She received her Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Violin Performance from New England Conservatory, where she studied with Paul Biss, Miriam Fried, and Soovin Kim. She most recently graduated with a Master’s degree in Historical Performance from The Juilliard School. Amelia specializes in Italian virtuoso music from the seventeenth through nineteenth centuries and chamber music of the Classical to early Romantic eras.
