Praised for his passionate and poetic performances, internationally-acclaimed violinist Nikki Chooi has established himself as an artist of rare versatility. Nikki has been featured at many international festivals with performances at the Marlboro Festival, Ravinia Festival, Moritzburg Festival, Kammermusik Utrecht, Morningside Music Bridge, Dresden Music Festival, Chamber Music New Zealand, and Fundación Beethoven in Chile.
A recipient of prizes at the Queen Elizabeth and Tchaikovsky Competitions, Nikki was the 1st Prize Winner of the Michael Hill International Violin Competition. He was previously Concertmaster of the MET Opera Orchestra and is currently Concertmaster of the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra.
I work with advanced violinists seeking to refine their technical, interpretive, and communicative skills.
