Allison Stringer

Allison Stringer holds a Masters degree in Violin Performance from Codarts University for the Arts, studying under Gordan Nikolić, and an Honours Bachelor of Music in Violin Performance from Wilfrid Laurier University, studying under the Penderecki String Quartet. Allison began the violin at the age of 2 ½, later taking up the piano and viola, and has been ensconced in music since. She is an active performer specializing in classical, contemporary and folk music and has appeared in festivals and toured in an orchestral setting throughout North America and Europe. Most notably she has performed in the Gergiev Festival in Rotterdam, with the Doelen Ensemble during their Unremembered tour, as a soloist premiering jazz inspired new compositions with the Fifty Fiddles Orchestra and as soloist premiering The Lost and the Damned by Canadian composer Adam Hakooz at De Doelen, Rotterdam. While living in Canada she has worked as a session musician in the folk and indie music scene and has performed with internationally renowned artists such as Amanda Palmer. Allison is also a founding member of the Celtic fusion duo Filidhean.

While Allison is a trained and active performer, her desire to promote music to future generations has led her into the field of music education. She has taught as a private music instructor since 2009 and has lectured at the college level as well as an instrumental teacher at St. Mary’s Saturday Music Classes since 2019. Allison is currently working on a PhD at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland studying the Scottish music of Alexander Campbell Mackenzie.
