Schroeder, Amy

New York based violinist Amy Schroeder is a founding member of the two-time GRAMMY-award winning Attacca Quartet and has been hailed by the Washington Post as ‘an impressive artist whose playing combines imagination and virtuosity.’ While much of her time is spent touring internationally with her quartet, Ms. Schroeder also performs in the Schroeder Umansky Duo with her husband Felix Umansky of the Harlem Quartet and their group Trio Raconteur with pianist Yalin Chi.  She currently plays on two different violins, a Fernando Gagliano made in 1771 on loan to her from the Five Partners Foundation, and a violin made by Nathan Slobodkin in 2012. Outside of performing and recording Ms. Schroeder loves spending time with her husband and 3-year-old daughter as well as composing and arranging, gardening, crafty home projects, and when given the chance – scuba diving.
