An eighth-grader with a knack for advanced mathematics, Noelle Streuber-Eden studied solo violin with Tamara Ringas for 7 years and is currently continuing her advanced training with Prof. Guillaume Combet in Philadelphia. Noëlle plays on an instrument made in 2011 by Chicago-area luthier Gary Rickman and is a die-hard fan of Hilary Hahn, Ray Chen, and Twoset Violin. An avid orchestra musician, Noëlle has served as the Associate Concertmaster of the Philadelphia Young Artist’s Orchestra and as co-concert master and soloist in the Philharmonic and Concert Orchestras of the Chicago Youth Symphony Orchestra. Since she thoroughly enjoys ensemble collaborations–the more innovative, the better–Noelle loves the creative, collaborative environment of Temple University’s Center for Gifted Young Musicians and of the Ann Newman String Quartet, sponsored by the Settlement Music School’s Advanced Study Program. Noëlle has completed violin master classes with the legendary Almita Vamos, Grammy Award winner Jennifer Koh, Cleveland Orchestra Associate Concertmaster Amy Lee, and Shanghai Isaac Stern International Violin Competition finalist/ winner Angela Sin Ying Chan, and has studied with Desirée Ruhstrat during the Heifetz Institute 2022 Summer Session.
