Nadia Sirota: Advice for Musicians Just Out of School

You’re just out of school – what do you do now? Super-commissioner, violist, and radio host Nadia Sirota offers her advice for what young, aspiring musicians should be doing for a healthy career (and for one’s sanity).

Noted Endeavors“A one-woman contemporary-classical commissioning machine” (Pitchfork), violist Nadia Sirota is best known for her singular sound and expressive execution, coaxing works and collaborations from the likes of Nico Muhly, Daníel Bjarnason, Valgeir Sigurðsson, Judd Greenstein, Marcos Balter, and Missy Mazzoli. Her debut album First Things First (New Amsterdam Records) was named a record of the year by The New York Times, and her follow-up Baroque (Bedroom Community and New Amsterdam) has been called “beautiful music of a higher order than anything else you will hear this year” by SPINMedia website PopMatters.
