Named the 2011 “Young Artist of the Year” by the National Critics Association of Music and Drama in Greece, Greek violinist Areta Zhulla is quickly establishing herself as a dynamic and passionate artist. She has performed at many renowned venues such as Carnegie Hall, Auditorium du Louvre, Alice Tully Hall, Kennedy Center, Metropolitan Museum of Art, and National Arts Centre of Canada. She made her Megaron Hall debut in Athens in 2010, performing under the baton of legendary French conductor Michel Plasson and the Athens State Symphony Orchestra. Other recent engagements include solo performances with the Camerata Orchestra of Greece, Westchester Philharmonic, Kenosha Symphony, and the State Symphony of Thessalonica. She has performed with legendary violinist Itzhak Perlman at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the Rose Theater at Lincoln Center. She has appeared in such music festivals as Music@Menlo, The Perlman Music Program Chamber Music Workshop, Kneisel Hall, and Pinchas Zukerman’s Young Artists Program in Canada, and has studied for seven summers at the Perlman Music Program Summer School. A member of Chamber Music Society Two, she holds bachelor's and master’s degrees from The Juilliard School, where she studied with Itzhak Perlman and Catherine Cho, and was a recipient of the Vergotis Scholarship. Ms. Zhulla performs on a copy of Stradivarius’s “Viotti,” made by her father, Greek luthier Lefter Zhulla.
