Of Note

Performs on a 1655 Nicolò Amati violin

Began her musical studies at age six and in masterclasses by age twelve.

Nokuthula Ngwenyama is a YCA alumna and composed this new work for Bella Hristova.

The piece Miasma is based on the Covid-19 genome sequence.

We are proud to close our 45th season with our Harmony from Discord concert. We are honored to represent a community that believes in and supports our work celebrating composers who suffered under oppression and fought for humanity through their music. Bella Hristova is the perfect soloist for this work, and these works.

“A player of impressive power and control...she brought the audience to its feet.”Washington Post
