Today is violinist, VC Artist Timothy Chooi’s 28th birthday!

Praised for his "powerful and finely nuanced interpretations, sumptuous sonorities, and a compelling stage presence," Philadelphia-native violinist Timothy Chooi is sought after as a soloist and recitalist. He is a scholarship holder in the Anne-Sophie Mutter Foundation.

As a founding member of The VISION Collective, he is the recipient of the 2020 Harold W. McGraw Family Foundation's The Robert Sherman Award for Music Education and Community Outreach.

A graduate of The Curtis Institute of Music, Chooi is currently enrolled in The Juilliard School's prestigious Artist Diploma program studying with Catherine Cho and a Professional Studies candidate at the Kronberg Academy with Christian Tetzlaff. His mentors include Ida Kavafian, Pamela Frank, Pinchas Zukerman, and Patinka Kopec.

Timothy Chooi is a Professor of Violin at the University of Ottawa. He performs on the 1717 Windsor-Weinstein Stradivarius on a generous loan from the Canada Council for the Arts and is a recipient of the Nippon Music Foundation Rare Instrument Project from the Government of Japan.

Future engagements include return appearances with the Toronto Symphony Orchestra, Montreal Symphony Orchestra, National Arts Centre Orchestra Ottawa, and the Belgian National Orchestra, as well as his debuts with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Russian National Orchestra, DSO Berlin, Brandenburgisches Staatsorchester Frankfurt, Saarländisches Staatsorchester, and the Sichuan Symphony Orchestra.
