Yolanda Bruno

Violinist Yolanda Bruno has been praised for her “total control of her instrument with infinite variety in the sound palette” (La Presse) and was recently listed on CBC’s 30 Hot Canadian Classical Musicians under 30. Yolanda has performed across North America and Europe including solos with the Montreal Symphony Orchestra, L'Orchestre Métropolitain, the Youth Orchestra of the Americas and the London Mozart Players. She has appeared in the Montreal Chamber Music Festival, the Ottawa Chamberfest, Toronto Summer Music Festival, and the BBC Proms. She recently won the 2017 Isabel Overton Bader Violin Competition and was the grand prize winner at the OSM Standard Life Competition (2013). She is also the recipient of Canada Council’s Virginia Parker Award, a distinction shared with her fellow Canadian musicians Yannick Nézet-Séguin, James Ehnes and Marc-André Hamelin. A laureate of the 2015 Canada Council of the Arts Musical Instrument Bank Competition, Yolanda was generously loaned the 1700 Taft Stradivari violin.
