Biography

Portuguese violinist Joana started playing violin aged 4 and soon joined the Aveiro Conservatoire of Music where she studied with Ana Sofia Mota until she finished school.Continuing her studies, her main teachers were Radu Blidar(Royal College of Music, London), Gordan Nikolic (Codarts, Rotterdam) and Paul Wakabayashi (chamber music ANSO, Lisbon). She also participated in Masterclasses for solo and chamber music, given by distinguished Professors including Daniel Rowland, Leonid Kerbel, Zoltan Santa and the Chilingirian Quartet. As chamber music is one of her main passions, Joana was a member of the Sattler Quartet and now co-manages Artisti con Brio. She attended many festivals such as Harmus Festival, Stift International Festival, Aurora Chamber Music and Lake District Chamber Music.
Joana has been a member and guest in several orchestras including Garsington Opera, Southbank Sinfonia, Britten Sinfonia, Opera North, Orpheus Sinfonia, Philharmonia Amsterdam, Gustav Mahler Jugendorchester and Chipping Campden Festival Academy Orchestra. Her interest for historical performance has led her to some festivals such as Dartington, EUBO Mobile Academy and Freiburg Barockorchester Academy where she had the opportunity of studying with wonderful violinists such as with Petra Müllejans, Margaret Faultless and Adrian Butterfield. She also plays regularly with period ensembles such as Brandenburg Sinfonia and Feuersinfonie(Utrecht Oude Muziek Fringe Festival). In 2016 she received a Career development bursary from Help Musicians UK and performed complete Beethoven Sonatas in a four-concert cycle in London.
Whilst studying in London, Joana was a recipient of the Gulbenkian Scholarship. Now she is grateful to have the support of the Harrison Frank Foundation, for the loan of a Maurizi violin.
