Brief Bio of Carina Vincenti
Carina Vincenti, 15, attends Northshore JHS, Bothell. Throughout the years, Carina has been blessed with brilliant teachers and coaches. She began violin studies in 2001 with Jan Coleman, continuing with the late Kent Coleman and currently with Simon James. Hiro David, a masterful accompanist, is foremost a terrific coach. Warren Kunz, her piano and theory teacher introduced Carina to the Coleman Studio. Music Director Alan Futterman has seated Carina in the Ballet Bellevue Orchestra and Bremerton Symphony. For Carina, master classes with Brian Lewis, James Ehnes, and James Buswell have been rewarding.
Her musical experiences include: the past four years in the Academy of Music Northwest chamber music ensembles; since 2003 in the Seattle Youth Symphony Orchestras, where this season she became Assistant Concertmaster of the Youth orchestra; Concertmaster of the 2008 WMEA All-State Orchestra in Olympia; two summers with Marrowstone–in-the-City and Marrowstone Festival Orchestra.
This year, Seattle Symphony’s Arts in Education Series placed her among the young violinists performing Vivaldi’s Concerto for Four Violins with SSO. The Seattle Young Artists Music Festival also named Carina as an ambassador performing in this year’s benefit concert, Music for Medicine. Carina was selected Concerto Winner in the 2009 Seattle Young Artists Music Festival, Playoff Finalist in the 2008 SYAMF, and second place in the 2009 Simon-Fiset String Competition. Last year, Carina made her concerto debut playing Mendelssohn Concerto with the Port Gardner Bay Chamber Orchestra.
Carina also enjoys playing piano, reading, swimming and above all, skiing.
