Anastasia Khitruk comes from a musical and artistic family. After
immigrating to the United States, Ms. Khitruk continued the violin
studies she had begun at Moscow's Central Music School. Her talent was
immediately recognized when she made her orchestral debut at the age of
eight. Since then, she has appeared in concert and recital worldwide,
including numerous performances in Boston, Los Angeles, New York, Aspen,
London, Geneva, Adelaide, Sofia, Paris, and Moscow -- where Katerina
Birukova of Vremya wrote: "She sparkles with brilliant violin playing."
Ms. Khitruk has appeared on television and radio in England, Russia,
Germany, the United States, and Australia. Her concert series in Bulgaria,
during the prestigious Sofia Music Weeks, was televised and greeted with
enthusiasm. In his review of her performance of the Shostakovich Concerto
No. 1 at the Adelaide Festival for Real Time, Chris Reid declared,
"Anastasia Khitruk is masterful!" She has been a prizewinner at numerous
competitions in the U.S. and internationally, including the Paganini
International Violin Competition.
An enthusiastic champion of modern music, Ms. Khitruk is often chosen
to premiere works of young composers. In addition to pursuing her concert
career, she is devoted to developing young audiences in her role as
