JENNIFER STUMM Viola, Founder and Artistic Director

Jennifer is widely recognized as one of the most dynamic violists of her generation. She has performed on such venues as the Carnegie Hall, the Berlin Philharmonie and London’s Wigmore Hall. Her solo career was launched after victories in three major international competitions: William Primrose, Geneva and Concert Artists Guild. An enthusiastic speaker and writer, Jennifer’s TED talk about the viola, “The Imperfect Instrument,” was named an editor’s pick. She has released two albums: the first in 2011, for Naxos, followed by “Harold in Italy” for Orchid Classics, both widely acclaimed. Originally from Atlanta, Jennifer started playing the viola at the age of eight and now holds the International Chair of Viola Studies at the Royal College of Music, London.
