Paula Muldoon

Address: 91 Comanche Drive, ,

Paula Muldoon received her B.M. in violin performance with highest honors in 2010 from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, where she studied violin with Aaron Berofsky and Kathryn Votapek. At UM, Paula was the first violinist of the Rosseels Quartet (the Graduate Quartet), concertmaster of the Baroque Chamber Orchestra, and a member of the Grammy Award-winning University Symphony Orchestra, with which she performed in Carnegie Hall. This fall, Paula will continue as the violinist of the Trio d’Avignon, a harpsichord/violin/cello ensemble based in Ann Arbor. She has attended Chautauqua (NY), Musicorda (MA), and Soundfest (MA), and this July will return to Switzerland for her second year at the Astona International music festival.

Paula first attended Soundfest as a student in 1998 and returned for many years, during which time she met Madeline Huberth, who is now the cellist of the Trio d’Avignon. In 2009, in addition to joining the Soundfest faculty, Paula taught an honors freshman seminar on Mozart’s Great Mass in c minor at UM. Paula’s novel set in Tudor England, The White Birds, was the only undergraduate finalist in UM’s prestigious Hopwood contest and her translation of the medieval poem Stabat Mater won her the Undergraduate Translation Award from the Classics Department. Paula worked with the University Musical Society in Ann Arbor, where she was the Coordinator for the 2010 Royal Shakespeare Company Creative Project and a marketing intern.

Before college, Paula attended the New England Conservatory Preparatory School, where she studied violin with Lynn Chang and Lilia Muchnik and with whose orchestras she toured Spain, France, Venezuela, and Brazil.

Paula is available to teach violin and viola to students of all ages, and also to play at weddings in the Cape Cod/Martha's Vineyard area.
