Robyn Bollinger

Early-Career Musician Resident, 2019–2020, Fall Term

American violinist Robyn Bollinger is a young artist on the rise. Recently out of conservatory, Bollinger is building a career as a soloist and chamber musician. Already recognized for her creativity, rich tones, emotional depth, and technical mastery, she received a prestigious 2016 fellowship from the Leonore Annenberg Arts Fellowship Fund for her multimedia performance project entitled “CIACCONA: The Bass of Time,” which she began touring in 2018. Bollinger made her Philadelphia Orchestra debut at age twelve, and has since performed with orchestras and at festivals nationwide, among them the Boston Pops, the Grand Tetons Music Festival Orchestra, and the music festivals of Aspen, Lake Champlain, Maui, Marlboro, and Rockport.

During her Early-Career Musician Residency, Bollinger is creating a new original multimedia recital entitled “Encore! Just One More . . .” Lighthearted and thought-provoking, it tells the story of that most indulgent musical tradition, exploring the legends, controversies, emotions, and practices of encores throughout history.
