21-year-old violinist Aubree Oliverson is a charismatic performer and communicator who loves sharing the joys of music with people of all ages. Since her solo debut with the Utah Symphony at age eleven, Ms. Oliverson has committed herself to the life of a performing artist. This commitment has garnered several accolades already at a young age, including her Carnegie Hall Weill Hall recital debut at age 12 as winner of the American Protégé International Strings Competition, several featured performances on NPR’s hit radio show From The Top, a 2016 National YoungArts Foundation Award, and winner of the 2016 U.S. Presidential Scholar in the Arts, the highest honor the U.S. government can bestow on a high school student.
Ms. Oliverson returned to the Utah Symphony at age 13 for a performance of the Tchaikovsky violin concerto conducted by Vladimir Kulenovic, and has since performed with many orchestras including the American Youth Symphony, Aspen Philharmonic Orchestra, Beach Cities Symphony, Burbank Philharmonic, Colburn Orchestra, Colburn Baroque Ensemble, Culver City Symphony Orchestra, Millennial Choir and Orchestra, Pacific Symphony, Pasadena Orchestra, Salt Lake Pops Orchestra, San Fernando Valley Symphony Orchestra, Topanga Canyon Symphony, Utah Chamber Artists, and the Innsbrook Festival Orchestra at the Innsbrook Festival in Missouri, where Aubree is a returning guest artist.
Ms. Oliverson has collaborated with artists such as Stefan Jackiw and Robert McDuffie in Harris Hall at the Aspen Music Festival and School, and with Lynn Harrell, Jean-Ives Thibaudet, Andrew Marriner, and Clive Greensmith in Los Angeles. Passionate about reaching a broader audience, Aubree has traveled to over 100 schools throughout the Western United States, motivating and inspiring thousands of children to work hard and participate in music. In June 2018 she gave a masterclass and performance in Wuhan, China, and worked individually with over 30 young violinists.
Ms. Oliverson was the concertmaster of the Gifted Music School Orchestra of Salt Lake City, and graduated from the Colburn Academy in Los Angeles in 2016 where she was concertmaster of the Academy Virtuosi Chamber Orchestra.
