Kinga Wojdalska - Violist

Kinga Wojdalska is a prize-winner of solo and chamber competitions. Among others, she received the Karl Doctor Prize at the Lionel Tertis International Viola Competition. To support her work, the Hattori Foundation, the Musicians’ Company, and the Countess of Munster Musical Trust awarded her scholarships for her artistic achievements. As a proud Varsovian, she received the early musical training there. In 2021 obtained a bachelor’s degree from the Royal College of Music in London. Currently, she is studying for a master’s soloist degree at Zürcher Hochschule der Künste, in Lawrence Power’s class.

While studying, Kinga performed at Musikverein in Vienna, Jordan Hall in Boston, and Wigmore Hall in London. She also engaged in significant festivals, including Encuentro de Santander (Spain) and West Wycombe Chamber Music Festival (UK). Chamber music is her biggest passion, and sharing a stage with fantastic instrumentalists, such as Vilde Frang, Ivan Monighetti, and Miklós Perényi, brought her inspiring and unforgettable musical experiences. In 2016, she co-founded the ensemble ‘Kameralna N-Harmonia’, and since 2020, she has been a proud member of the award-winning upcoming Brompton Quartet. Besides performing, she regularly takes viola masterclasses, learning from outstanding violists, including Nobuko Imai, Maxim Rysanov, and Máté Szűcs.
