Our third Sundays At Soka series is devoted to the great violin concertos.
19 year old American violinist, Chad Hoopes, has been appearing with numerous ensembles throughout the world since he won the first prize at the Young Artists Division of the Yehudi Menuhin International Violin Competition. His exceptional talent and magnificent tone are acclaimed by critics worldwide.
Chad plays the 1713 Antonio Stradivari Cooper; Hakkert; ex Ceci violin, courtesy of Jonathan Moulds. His recent debuts include such orchestras as the Vancouver Symphony, San Francisco Symphony, Utah Symphony, Pittsburgh Symphony, Houston Symphony, San Diego Symphony, Minnesota Orchestra, Brussels Chamber Orchestra, Orchestra of the Welsh National Opera, Colorado Music Festival Orchestra, and Trondheim Symphony and the National Arts Centre Orchestra in Ottawa, Canada. Chad is a frequent guest artist at the Menuhin Festival in Gstaad, Switzerland, since his debut in August 2009. He has appeared at the Tuscan Sun Festival in Cortona, Italy, performing Vivaldi’s Four Seasons, Festival del Sole in Napa Valley, Dresdner Musikfestspiele and Festspiele Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, where he has just recently been named the winner of the prestigious audience award.
In October 2012 he was signed by the French label NAÏVE. His first recording with the MDR Radio Symphony Orchestra under Kristjan Järvi (Mendelssohn and John Adams concertos) will be released in spring 2014. Further highlights of the 2013-2014 seasons will be his debut at Philharmonie Gasteig with the Munich Symphony Orchestra and debut recitals in Berlin and Paris. Chad Hoopes is the winner of the Cleveland Arts Prize 2013. Beyond the concert hall, Chad's virtuosity and exuberant personality have been featured on the CBS Early Show, NBC affiliate station WKYC (Cleveland), NPR station WCLV in Ohio, ABC affiliate station KSTP Twin Cities Live, and on PBS's From the Top: Live at Carnegie Hall. He was the soloist on the Emmy Award-winning June 2007 television commercial for the Cleveland Indians Major League Baseball team produced by SportsTime Ohio Network, which aired on NBC on SportsTime Ohio and on ESPN.
