Soloist: Misha Vayman

Violinist Misha Vayman, grandson of the Soviet violinist Mikhail Vaiman, began his musical studies at the age of four in St. Petersburg, Russia. He has studied with a number of prominent pedagogues, including Kurt Sassmannshaus, Mauricio Fuks, ISO concertmaster Zachary DePue, and acclaimed concert violinist Joan Kwuon.

Misha has won a large number of fellowships and has performed as recitalist and chamber musician at many prestigious festivals in the USA and internationally. In 2016 he added a faculty position at Benefic Chamber Music Festival to his summer schedule, involving himself in coaching and private teaching, as well as having the opportunity to perform with the internationally renowned American Piano Trio. He has been named the first prize winner at the ENKOR International Violin Competition, the Paris Grand Prize Virtuoso International Music Competition, and the Fort Wayne Philharmonic, and Symphony of the Lakes concerto competitions.

Misha has performed as a soloist with a great number of orchestras, including the Starling Chamber Orchestra at the Forbidden City Concert Hall, China, the Fort Wayne Philharmonic, and Symphony of the Lakes Orchestras, Indiana, the Lake Charles Symphony, Louisiana, and the St. Petersburg Philharmonic, Russia. His performances have been broadcast nationally and internationally.

Both his live and recorded appearances have been met with critical acclaim. North Star called his playing “Poetic and sincere” “Lyrical… with serious technical gifts.” Journal Star noted that “The crowd rose to its feet”. Steven Trinkle, artistic director and conductor at Trinkle Brass Works, Inc. said that Misha demonstrated “Some of the best string playing I’ve ever heard.”

In 2011 Misha starred in the music video “Stronger” with groundbreaking string trio Time for Three. The video was featured on CNN in 2012.

Misha earned his BM from the Cleveland Institute of Music, and is now a MM candidate at the Colburn Conservatory of Music, where he studies with renowned violinist and pedagogue Martin Beaver.
