Inna Langerman is a versatile Belarusian-American violinist renowned for her contributions as a freelance chamber and orchestral musician in the New York metropolitan area, with a presence across the five boroughs and the tri-state region.
Her musical journey began at home in a family rooted in music, bringing up her earliest studies at the age of five. This nurturing environment led her to a pursuit of the violin at Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School. Inna's dedication was underscored through the attainment of two Master's degrees - one in Violin Performance and the other in Arts Entrepreneurship, both earned at SUNY Purchase College. In addition, she holds an Artist Diploma from the same institution, and a Bachelor of Music degree from Queens College's Aaron Copland School of Music. Throughout her journey, Inna had the privilege of studying under the guidance of distinguished teachers, including Daniel Phillips, Joey Corpus, Cal Wiersma, and Deborah Buck. As a strong believer in the importance of lifetime learning, Inna continually seeks growth and further development through distinguished violinists and mentors, including (but not limited to) Nathan Cole, Richard Amoroso, Daniel Kurganov, Jennifer Johnson, and the vibrant community on the digital platform Tonebase.
In the realm of orchestral engagements, Inna has performed at eminent venues, including Merkin Hall, Isaac Stern Auditorium and Zankel Hall of Carnegie Hall, David Geffen Hall, Alice Tully Hall, and the Rose Theater of Lincoln Center. Her musical endeavors have also reached international shores, including performances at Tokai University in Japan. Inna performs with an eclectic mix of ensembles, such as the National Yiddish Theater Folksbiene, the MostArts Festival Orchestra, New Amsterdam Opera, Binghamton Philharmonic, Palisades Sinfonietta, and Orchestra 914. Previously, she held pivotal roles as alternate principal second violinist, librarian, and assistant to the conductor with One World Symphony, as well as concertmaster positions with Utopia Opera and the Purchase Symphony & Opera.
As a vibrant pedagogue, Inna is currently on the faculty for violin and chamber music at Third Street Music School Settlement. Her commitment to music education has manifested through roles with organizations such as Interschool Orchestras of New York (ISO) and the Harmony Program - an institution inspired by El Sistema, with roles as a private teacher, upper strings coach, and assistant conductor. Her advocacy for public music education found a platform in 2014 when she appeared as a guest on CUNY TV.
In the digital sphere, Inna has harnessed the power of technology to extend her reach, maintaining a private online studio and producing enriching educational content on YouTube and her website, www.violinna.live. Her dedication to community enrichment through music has been acknowledged through accolades, including the Discimus Ut Serviamus award and the Miranda Arts Project grant.
