The Juilliard School- M.M.
Violinist Isabella Geis is an active chamber and orchestral musician and educator currently based in New York City where she is a student of Naoko Tanaka and David Chan at The Juilliard School. She has performed extensively in Cincinnati, her hometown, and in various venues throughout the US in cities such as Atlanta, Detroit, and Kansas City. Recently, she has appeared as the concertmaster of the Juilliard Orchestra as well as in the violin sections of the Princeton Symphony Orchestra and Montclair Orchestra. Chamber music and the beauty of performing in people’s homes, businesses, and community centers interests Isabella. She finds that the intimacy of these settings supports a great connection with her audience, created both through her music and the discussions which follow her performances. She has performed in chamber concerts at Juilliard in Paul and Morse Halls, Seiji Ozawa Hall in Tanglewood, Harris Concert Hall in Aspen, as well as in different Groupmuse locations throughout NYC. Isabella currently enjoys teaching a small studio of private violin students and in Cincinnati she has volunteered at MYCincinnati, an educational nonprofit supplying children with both musical instruments and guidance, fostering a wonderful community of young musicians. She is looking forward to returning to her role as a teaching fellow in the CLIMB program at Juilliard which introduces young children to both literature and music. Isabella is eagerly awaiting the new experiences she will gain this coming year as a Morse Teaching Artist fellow.
