From early age, I have been performing at prominent concert halls throughout the world.
I am a solo concert violinist, currently pursuing my bachelor’s degree at the Manhattan School of Music, studying with Professor Albert Markov.
I performed in masterclasses with Itzhak Rashkovsky, Alexander Markov, Minco Minchev, and Andrej Bielow, as well as at several festivals internationally.
With my quartet, I won several awards at international chamber competitions.
Native of Bursa - a historical city in Turkey’s industrial heartland, I started playing the violin at the age of nine.
In sixth grade, Uludag University State Conservatory in Bursa invited me to join their prestigious music program. There, I had the great privilege of completing my high-school under the tutelage of the University's music faculty, and was afforded many opportunities to perform internationally from an early age.
From day one, I set course to my journey as a studious aspiring solo concert violinist.
As a member of the Turkish National Youth Philharmonic Orchestra, I performed at prominent concert halls throughout the world:
Teatro Antico di Taormina, Teatro Sociale, and Sala Santa Cecilia in Rome, Italy, the Konzerthaus and Nikolaikirche in Berlin, Germany, the Pest Concert Hall, Eger Courtyard and Bishop’s Palace in Budapest, Hungary, the Slovak Radio Hall in Bratislava, Slovakia, the Smetana Hall in Prague, Czech Republic, and the Zorlu Performing Arts Center in Istanbul, Turkey.
At thirteen, I had my first solo debut alongside the Bursa Youth Orchestra.
Performed solo at Norwalk Concert Hall -- opening for Alexander Markov.
I have been blessed to be part of an amazing family, surrounded with so many great teachers and genuine friends that help me flourish and get where I am today.
