Violinist Alexandra Lomeiko Performs in Worthing

Christchurch-born violinist Alexandra Lomeiko recently performed the Beethoven Violin Concerto with Worthing Philharmonic Orchestra.

Chichester Observer journalist Phil Hewitt writes: “Lomeiko was born in 1991 into a family of musicians and started playing at the age of five. She came to England in 2006 and was awarded a scholarship, won many prizes and is currently a postgraduate student at the Royal College of Music.

“She has performed internationally in many countries and is now based in London. As well as a soloist, she is an avid chamber music player and founded and continues to direct her own Silk Street Sinfonia. She has performed in the Royal Festival Hall, the Queen Elizabeth Hall, Buckingham Palace, the Wigmore Hall and many other venues [throughout the UK]. She plays on an Italian Carlo Tonini violin circa 1687 on loan from the Royal College of Music.”

Lomeiko next performs a recital with Latvian pianist Antonina Suhanova in Tunbridge Wells on 19 March.
