Luca Kevorkian

Luca Kevorkian grew up in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, where he began his music studies in 2004 through the social project Bem Me Quer Paquetá. At the age of 7, during a string quartet performance, he fell in love with the violin and started taking lessons from Carla Rincón.

Through the same project, he has performed as the concertmaster of Paquetá Youth Orchestra in concert halls in Brazil and Germany, debuting works by several Brazilian composers.

Luca has received awards in various music competitions such as the City of Fundão International Competition, the 15th Paulo Bosísio National String Competition, Villa-Lobos Chamber Music Competition and Euterpe Music Club Scholarship. Additionally, he was awarded first prize in the 2019 North Carolina Symphony Youth Concerto Competition. Luca has also played in many masterclasses held by artists such as Leon Spierer, Matt Haimovitz, Pinchas Zukerman and Nadja Salerno-Sonnenberg.

As a senior at UNCSA under the tutelage of Professor Kevin Lawrence, Luca is extremely grateful to all his teachers who shaped him to become the musician he is today. Through chamber music, he hopes to be able to change other children's lives as a community social project changed his life.
