‘playing that flows from the heart’ ‘trailblazing violinist’ ‘charting her own course’
Anne Akiko Meyers is one of the world’s renowned violinists -a soloist, chamber musician, recording artist and educator who is known as one of the most diverse artists collaborating with artists such as Chris Botti, Il Divo and Wynton Marsalis, premiering new works written for her and showcasing under-performed or rarely heard works.
Meyers was born in San Diego, California and grew up in the Los Angeles area before heading to New York. She studied with Alice and Eleonore Schoenfeld at the Colburn School of Performing Arts, Josef Gingold at Indiana University, and Felix Galimir, Masao Kawasaki and Dorothy DeLay at the Juilliard School. At age 23, she was awarded the prestigious Avery Fisher Career Grant, the only artist to be the sole recipient of this annual prize.
In the fall of 2009, she was named Professor of Violin at the Butler School of Music at the University of Texas at Austin. In 2008, she was the first violinist to be a Regent’s Lecturer at the University of California, Los Angeles. Meyers has given masterclasses around the world, was a panelist at the Juilliard hosted Starling-DeLay Symposium and is an adjudicator for competitions.
