26-year-old American violinist William Hagen is quickly building an international reputation as a captivating young concert artist of outstanding potential – praised for his commanding technique, conviction and innate musicality.

A graduate of The Juilliard School and The Colburn School, where he studied with Itzhak Perlman and Robert Lipsett, and current student of Christian Tetzlaff at the Kronberg Academy, William is a former major prize winner at the Fritz Kreisler and Queen Elisabeth International Violin Competitions.

His recent performances include solo engagements with the San Francisco Symphony, Seattle Symphony, Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra and the Frankfurt Radio Symphony – and he will this season make his solo debut with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra.

William currently performs on a 1735 Sennhauser Guarneri del Gesù – on generous loan from the Stradivari Society of Chicago.
