about kerenza


A renowned classical violinist, Kerenza’s album as soloist with the London Symphony Orchestra reached the top of the UK Classical Charts. Her recording of Vivaldi's 'Four Seasons', directed by herself from the violin, was picked as Album of the Week on Classic FM, and she has just recorded a disc of concertos written especially for her by Oliver Davis, with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. Kerenza led the Pavao String Quartet on five albums and 15 years of tours throughout the world. She is a regular concerto soloist in London’s St. Martin in the Fields.

Kerenza studied violin at the Royal Academy of Music, graduating with First Class Honors and was awarded a Leverhulme Fellowship for 2 years. Her solo and chamber discs have all received 5-star reviews.  

Kerenza also enjoys playing fiddle and singing in bluegrass band, the Coal Porters and wrote 2 songs on their latest album. Kerenza has played on many television and film soundtracks, including Downton Abbey, and she has performed with a huge number of artists including Paul McCartney and KanYe West. At one point she was playing on all Top 3 albums in the Pop Charts, as well as on the Classical no. 1. In 2016 she completed a year long global tour with Adele, as concertmaster.

Kerenza has recently been appointed an Associate of the Royal Academy of Music for making a “significant contribution to the music industry"
