Hailed by Time Out New York as "one of New York's most reliably adventurous performers," violinist Jennifer Choi has charted a career that breaks through the conventional boundaries of solo violin, chamber music, and the art of creative improvisation. Internationally recognized as a performer with "brilliance and command," (The New York Times), "a leadingNew York new-music violinist that plays it with fiery authority" (Boston Globe), and with "intense, spectacularly virtuosic play" (The Seattle Weekly), Jennifer brings her strong classical background and dedication to whatever work she decides to take on from Bach to Zorn and back.
In May, 2012, Kathy Supové received the ASCAP John Cage Award for “the artistry and passion with which she performs, commissions, records, and champions the music of our time.”
