Carlos Miguel Prieto, conductor  
Alexandra Soumm, violin   Bio

French violinist Alexandra Soumm is a multi-faceted artist who is equally at home in concerto and chamber repertoire. Born in Moscow, Alexandra Soumm started to learn the violin with her father at the age of five and gave her first concert two years later.  She later moved to Vienna to study with the renowned pedagogue Boris Kuschnir and won the Eurovision Competition in 2004.  Now based in Paris, she, along with two friends, founded non-profit organisation Esperanz’Arts in 2012, which was the culmination of four years’ involvement in charity projects aimed at creating opportunities through the arts.
