Violinist Heidi Hatch was born in Los Angeles in 1993. Her first teacher was Abram Shtern. She made her professional debut as a soloist with the Glendale Symphony in Sarasate’s Carmen Fantasy at the age of eleven, and has appeared since on stages such as Los Angeles’ Ambassador Auditorium, Madrid’s Auditorio Sony, and the Harbin Grand Theatre in China. In addition to her early work with Abram Shtern, Heidi’s studies with Zakhar Bron at Madrid’s elite Escuela Reina Sofía place her in the mainstream of the Russian violin tradition.

As well as her extensive solo career, Heidi’s interest in chamber and orchestral repertoire has led her to serve as concertmaster of numerous orchestras, including the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra, the Debut Orchestra of the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Santa Monica Symphony, and the Orchestra of the Festival Villanueva de los Infantes. Most recently, she won the audition for concertmaster of the Orquesta de Extremadura in Spain, where she has been performing for several months.

A graduate of the University of Southern California (magna cum laude), Heidi also received an Artist Diploma from Toronto’s Royal Conservatory, where she played as concertmaster and soloist with the conservatory’s orchestra. In addition, she was named Best Spanish Participant in the International Sarasate Competition, awarded the Grand Prize in the Hennings-Fischer Competition, and was a laureate and recipient of the Outstanding Award at the Schoenfeld Competition in China.

She plays on a violin made in Cremona by G.B. Ceruti (1804).
