Described as ‘brilliant’ and ‘lyrical’ by The Washington Post, Lina Bahn is a violinist with a keen interest in collaborative and innovative repertoire. From 1998–2010, Lina Bahn was a member of the award-winning Corigliano Quartet, which held residency posts at Indiana University, Juilliard, and Dickinson College. They performed in venues including Alice Tully Hall, Ravinia, the Corcoran Gallery, Phillips Collection, Carnegie Hall, and the Library of Congress, earning the ASCAP/CMA Award for Adventurous Programming. In 2007, their Naxos recording of quartets by John Corigliano and Jefferson Friedman (8.559180) was selected by New Yorker magazine as one of the year’s ‘Best 10 Recordings.’ The Strad magazine lauded them for their “abundant commitment and mastery”, and The New York Times praised them as “musicians who seem to say ‘listen to this!’” Lina Bahn was the Executive Director and violinist with the VERGE Ensemble, which was the resident ensemble of the Corcoran Gallery of Art. She was a member of the National Gallery New Music Ensemble of the Smithsonian, which gave its inaugural performance in the East Wing in 2010, and which also participated in the 2012 Washington D.C. John Cage Centennial Festival. She is currently a member of MoVE (Modern Violin Ensemble), a violin quartet commissioning works to bring awareness to global issues. A committed educator, Bahn was appointed to the staff of the University of Colorado Boulder from 2008–2015, and has taught masterclasses and lessons throughout the world. She was on the faculty at the Sierra Summer Academy of Music from 2000–2013, the Institute of the Palazzo Rucellai in Florence, Italy, and is on the faculty at Green Mountain Chamber Music Festival. She currently teaches at the Thornton School of Music at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles.
