New Century Chamber Orchestra Announces Nadja Salerno-Sonnenberg Named New Music Director

“One of the few classical artists who must be experienced in person” -The Washington Post 

Passion, excitement, and innovation are the hallmarks of internationally acclaimed soloist and chamber musician Nadja Salerno-Sonnenberg’s artistry. Praised for her compelling performances, daring interpretations, and electric stage presence, she is one of today’s leading violinists, renowned for her work on the concert stage, in the recording studio, and highly respected for her vision and guidance as music director of the San Francisco-based New Century Chamber Orchestra, which she has led since January 2008. With successful careers in both the solo and chamber music worlds, Nadja continues to enthrall audiences of all ages. 

Dedicated to her craft, Nadja is committed to sharing her experience and knowledge. This season, in addition to performances with orchestras and recital concerts, Nadja will begin a multiyear engagement as "Resident Artist" with Loyola University New Orleans. She will also be working with string orchestras in specially designed "Guest Residencies" at several Universities throughout the country. 

A powerful and creative presence on the recording scene, Nadja continues to add to the offerings of her own record label, NSS Music, which she started in 2005. The label’s roster of artists includes Ms. Salerno-Sonnenberg, pianist Anne-Marie McDermott, horn player John Cerminaro, pianist/composer Clarice Assad, conductor Marin Alsop, the American String Quartet, the Colorado Symphony, Orquestra Sinfonica do Estado de Sao Paulo, and the New Century Chamber Orchestra. In addition to her over twenty releases on the EMI and Nonesuch labels, Nadja has also made several recordings for NSS MUSIC (www.nssmusic.com), featuring both concerto and chamber pieces. The latest release, From A To Z (May 2014), is an all-commissions CD featuring violin concertos by Clarice Assad, William Bolcom, Michael Daugherty, and Ellen Taaffe Zwilich, all commissioned by New Century since Nadja joined the ensemble.
