Adriana Lebedovich joined the second violin section after successfully winning the audition in May 2007. She convocated from the University of Calgary in June 2009, with a Bachelor of Music, majoring in performance. She began playing the violin at age three and has studied with Katherine Grigoriu, Elaine Henchell, Theresa and Jeff Plotnick, John Lowry, and Edmond Agopian.
Adriana won the University of Calgary Concerto Competition in April 2006 and played the first movement of the Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto with the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra. Following her debut, she substituted regularly with the CPO until winning her present position. Adriana is a former member of the UCalgary String Quartet and toured Portugal with the quartet in May 2008. The quartet has recorded a CD of Eastern European Folk Music which was nominated for a Canadian Folk Music Award as well as a Western Canadian Music Award. She has studied at various summer programs including the Académie Musicale Internationale “Barbara Krakauer” program in Vaison-la-Romaine, France, the ARIA International Summer Music Academy in Muncie, Indiana, and the Banff Centre for Fine Arts. In July 2009 and 2010, Adriana had the pleasure of traveling to Brazil for the Festival Internacional de Inverno de Campos do Jordão, under the artistic direction of Roberto Minczuk.
This summer program is a chamber music and orchestral training program with students and faculty from all around the world. Adriana enjoyed playing the first violin concerto by Mozart with the Sunshine Coast Symphony Orchestra in June 2012, and is looking forward to playing the Beethoven Violin Concerto with the Timmins Symphony Orchestra in March 2014. Adriana celebrates her Ukrainian culture by playing with her polka band, Zhyto, and jamming with other folk musicians. When she is not playing the violin, Adriana can be found riding her horses, Stormy and Taima.
