VC YOUNG ARTIST | Chad Hoopes, 19 - "The most extraordinary young musician with whom I've ever come in contact”

19 year old American violin virtuoso Chad Hoopes is quickly establishing himself as one of the most exciting young concert artists to emerge in recent years – praised for his maturity, emotional expression and technical ease.

A student of Professor Ana Chumachenco, at the Kronberg Academy, in Germany, Chad is a former 1st prize in the Junior Division of the 2008 Menuhin Competition – aged just 13.

Internationally respected pedagogue David Cerone has been quoted as suggesting, Chad is “the most extraordinary young musician with whom I’ve ever come in contact … when he comes on to a stage he lights it up … it brings tears to your eyes.”

His recent debuts include solo engagements with the San Francisco Symphony, Pittsburgh Symphony, Houston Symphony, Minnesota Orchestra, Brussels Chamber Orchestra and the Trondheim Symphony – and he was recently given the prestigious honour of replacing virtuoso Christian Tetzlaff on a number of North American engagements.

Chad currently performs on the 1713 ‘Cooper ex-Ceci’ Stradivarius – on generous loan from Jonathan Moulds.
