Amy Beth Horman
American violinist Amy Beth Horman began her violin studies at the age of five. At seventeen, she withdrew from high school to compete for a place in the doctoral program at the Conservatoire National Superieur de Musique in Paris. Subsequently, among an international field of applicants, Ms. Horman won the highly coveted Premier Prix in Solo Violin at that level and within two years she had completed the Third Cycle for Solo Violin under the tutelage of Gerard Poulet. Following the completion of her studies, she has established herself as a soloist and chamber musician through numerous orchestral and recital appearances. Ms. Horman's appearances are always eagerly anticipated: The Washington Post has hailed her as "having the stuff of greatness."
