Evelyn Song


Described by The Baltimore Sun as “clearly gifted” and having “expressive talent,” violinist Evelyn Song is passionate about sharing her joy in music making. A popular recitalist at local retirement homes, her performances are often accompanied by original storytelling; as an enthusiastic young teacher, she spends her summers coaching young string students in her home studio as well as at summer camps. Evelyn began piano lessons at age five and took on the violin at age seven. When she was eight, she had to wear a cast on her left ring finger for several months due to an injury. Dissatisfied with practicing only her right hand, she re-arranged the fingerings in the music so that she could use both hands while avoiding the finger in the cast. Her unwavering dedication has led to many exciting opportunities.

Most recently, she performed Vivaldi’s Concerto for Two Violins and Mozart’s Violin Concerto No. 5 with the Orchestra at Montgomery College conducted by Pablo Saelzer. She also had the honor of playing the Bruch Double Concerto for Violin and Viola with Jonathan Carney and the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra under the baton of Marin Alsop. As the winner of the Feder Memorial String Competition, Evelyn has performed in outreach concerts at a variety of unusual venues, including the Spanish Ambassador’s residence in Washington D.C. and the grand opening of Ann Taylor at Union Station. During her seven-year tenure with the Maryland Classic Youth Orchestras (MCYO), she was appointed concertmaster for five consecutive years. An avid chamber musician, Evelyn led the MCYO string quartets to the Fischoff National Chamber Music Competition for the past two years, as well as the Final Round of the Saint Paul String Quartet Competition in 2016. She has performed in master classes with such distinguished artists as Nikolaj Znaider, Rachel Barton Pine, Stefan Jackiw, and the Fine Arts Quartet, and attended the Heifetz International Music Institute, where she studied with Daniel Phillips, Patinka Kopec, and Mark Kaplan. Evelyn is currently pursuing a Bachelor of Music degree under the tutelage of Ivan Zenaty at the Cleveland Institute of Music.
