Violinis Heidi Powell is quickly gaining prominence as a leader and soloist on baroque violin.

She has served as concertmaster for the Washington Bach Consort, Brandywine Baroque, and San Francisco Bach Choir.

The New York Times recently described her solo violin playing as "deft" in a performance with the New York Collegium and hailed her prize-winning performance in the American Bach Soloists' International Baroque Violin Competition as "supremely confident and powerful."

When not performing elsewhere, Heidi enjoys teaching violin & chamber music in Blue Hill, Maine and organizing the local chamber music concert series: "The Woo Downeast Presents."
