“She has a meaty, luscious sound, rhythmically driven, the raw honesty of her musicality tempered by a confident, light-handed virtuosity.”

Biography

Ottawa-based violinist Carissa Klopoushak has made a name for herself as a curious, creative, and versatile violinist.  A charismatic and engaging performer, Carissa's playing has been described as the complete package of sensitive musicianship and effortless technique. In addition to her solo appearances, she is co-founder of the Ritornello Chamber Music Festival, singer in the Ukrainian folk-rock band Tyt i Tam, and a part of the “take-no-prisoners” string quartet, Ironwood.  She released her debut album, SOUNDWORLDS, with pianist Philip Chiu. Carissa plays on a 1851 Jean Baptiste Vuillaume violin, generously on loan from the Canada Council for the Arts Instrument Bank.
