Jonathan Wright
Violin and Chamber Music

I studied classical violin from an early age and perform regularly in orchestral, chamber and solo repertory. In Aberdeen, SD, I co-founded the Serenate Strings string quartet with violinist Barbara Pressler, violist Kregg Stovner, and ’cellist Suk-Kyung Moon. In Claremont, I play as second violinist in a faculty string quartet Euphoria at the Claremont Colleges (with violinist Rachel Vetter-Huang, violist Cythia Fogg, and ’cellist Thomas Flaherty) and in a violin-piano duo with Stephan Moss. On regular occasions, I also perform the Pomona College Symphony and with ad-hoc ensembles in the Los Angeles area.
