BIO - VIOLINIST

An in-demand session violinist, experienced in leading film and session orchestras, and soloing in many gigs across every musical genre.

 

A classically trained violinist, Ceskie performs on both acoustic and electric violin. She is known for her high standards of sight-reading, musicianship, improvisation and professionalism across all genres. She also has a very strong musical ear and has considerable experience of transcribing across every genre from solos to full orchestra.

Ceskie particularly enjoys playing and arranging for Pop, Funk, RnB, Soul, Hip-hop, Jazz, and many other popular genres in live shows. She has performed and recorded in singles, albums, live concerts, over 200 sessions, within the past fifteen months. She regularly plays in six-hour recording sessions of film and game scores, producing new recordings every thirty minutes.

A performance highlight was playing solo violin for Prince William and The Duke of Westminster at a private recital in 2015.

She has also been a featured soloist with Eugene Freisen's World Strings Ensemble / Trio Globo and selected from the Harry Potter Symphony Orchestra to lead a quartet in a live-streaming concert for Fenway Alliance Boston Arts Festival. Other notable performances include a recording session with Thomas Newman, performing with a jazz ensemble for Jacob Collier and playing in a recording session with Patrice Rushen.

From 2009 – 2016, Ceskie studied violin at Chetham’s School of Music, UK. She performed numerous symphonies and concertos with Chetham's Symphony Orchestra in venues such as The Royal Festival Hall, Barbican and Cadogan Hall.
