Known for her “expansive lyricism” (New York Times), violinist Nanae Iwata has quickly established herself in versatile roles as a soloist, period performer, recitalist, chamber musician, and orchestral musician. As a winner of the Artist International Competition in 2008 she was awarded a debut recital at Carnegie Hall which was praised by critic Anthony Aibel as “riveting” and “exquisitely done” (New York Concert Review). She performs regularly in the United States, Europe, and Asia and is a member of the Saito Kinen Orchestra, The Knights, New York Baroque Incorporated, and the Concert Royal.

Ms. Iwata, a devoted music educator, will be serving as Visiting Lecturer at Cornell University for the Spring semester 2016. She is also the Director of the New Amsterdam Conservatory which she founded in 2013. Previously held positions include the Sherwood Conservatory (Chicago), Lucy Moses School (NYC), and the Mozart Music Academy (Nagoya, Japan). She earned her Bachelor and Master of Music degrees in violin performance and an additional Master of Music in Baroque Violin from The Juilliard School. She won the Juilliard Concerto Competition and was a full­scholarship student of Masao Kawasaki, Ronald Copes, Monica Huggett and Cynthia Roberts. For more information please visit:
