A versatile chamber and orchestral musician, violinist Njioma Grevious, 22, of Washington, DC, and New York City, completed her undergraduate studies at The Juilliard School and was awarded the John Erskine Prize for scholastic and artistic achievement. She was a student of Ronald Copes and  a recipient of the Jerome L. Greene Scholarship.  In 2018 she won First Prizes for Performance and Interpretation in the Prix Ravel chamber music competition in France. In 2019 she won a  Music Academy of the West Keston-Max Fellowship to study and perform with the London Symphony Orchestra in 2022.

 

Njioma has recently performed as a soloist with the Chicago Philharmonic, and for several years has been a fellow of the Montclair Orchestra.  She has been featured in masterclasses with members of the Berlin Philharmonic and the Boston Symphony Orchestra as well as with Glenn Dicterow, Gérard Poulet, Astrid Schween and Sheryl Staples. As a chamber musician she has performed in numerous music series, and has enjoyed recording projects including Naomi Raine’s “Find My Peace.”  

 

Njioma has been invited to participate in summer festivals including Yale’s Norfolk Chamber Music Festival, Music Academy of the West, Montreal International String Quartet Academy, Meadowmount, Fontainebleau Schools, Boston University Tanglewood Institute, and the inaugural Virtuosi Virtual Summer Academy.    

Before attending Juilliard, Njioma toured in Germany, Spain, Argentina, the Czech Republic and The Netherlands and performed in Carnegie Hall and Boston’s Symphony Hall as a member for five years of the Boston Philharmonic Youth Orchestra conducted by Benjamin Zander. Grateful to have been a scholarship recipient for many years through Winsor Music and Boston’s Project STEP string training program for black and Latinx youth, Njioma studied during that time primarily with Farhoud Moshfegh, Marianna Green-Hill and James Buswell. Njioma, who began playing the violin at age 4, has since then performed in numerous volunteer concerts with her siblings and many others. As a Juilliard Gluck Fellow she performed regularly for the medically vulnerable, retirees and children. She enjoys performing in Sound Off: Music for Bail Concerts and teaching composition and collaboration to NYC elementary and middle school students from underserved communities through the Opportunity Music Project. 

 

Njioma also loves traveling, baking, board games and sports activities with family and friends.
