Violinist Jacqueline Audas is excited to join the Seattle Symphony at the start of their 2024 season. In recent years, she has performed as a soloist, chamber, and orchestral musician across the United States and internationally in Israel, Germany, Italy, Spain, and New Zealand. A laureate of several competitions, Jacqueline was awarded first prize in the 2017 North International Violin Competition and was a quarter-finalist in both the 2019 Michael Hill International Violin Competition and the 2020 Elmar Oliveira International Violin Competition. She was also selected as a recipient of the Arkady Fomin Scholarship Fund in 2017. Her recent engagements include performances with the Jupiter Symphony Chamber Players, the Baltimore Symphony, the North Shore Chamber Music Festival, the Music in the Mountains Festival Orchestra, and the Aspen Music Festival.
Jacqueline holds a Graduate Performance Diploma from the Peabody Institute at Johns Hopkins University, where she studied with Vadim Gluzman. Previously, she studied with Paul Kantor at Rice University’s Shepherd School of Music, where she earned both a Bachelor’s Degree, conferred Summa Cum Laude, and a Master’s Degree in Violin Performance. Prior to university, she studied with the late Arkady Fomin.

Jacqueline is the founder and artistic director of the non-profit Classical C.A.R.M.A. (Concerts Aiming to Raise Money and Awareness), which organizes benefit concerts to fundraise for, and bring awareness to, other non-profit organizations and their missions. More information can be found at
