Agatha Blevin

Peruvian-American violinist, Agatha Blevin is a seasoned and versatile violinist. Beginning her studies at age 3 in Houston, TX, she made her solo performance debut in Turin, Italy at 8 years old. She identifies first and foremost as a passionate chamber musician, and has performed alongside Grigory Kalinovsky, Axel Strauss, Caroline Shaw, Francisco Fullana, Jeffery and Gabriel Kahane, Mark Holloway, Roger Tapping, and the Tesla Quartet. As a former member of the Sileo Quartet, Agatha also worked closely with the Pacifica String Quartet as part of Indiana University’s prestigious String Quartet Fellowship Program. During her time in the Sileo Quartet, she competed in the renowned Fischoff Competition and received first prize in the Kuttner Quartet Competition. She has also been invited to compete at the Coltman Chamber Music Competition with both Sileo (2020) and her recently formed clarinet/violin/piano trio, Trio Palmera (2024). Agatha has also received first prize in the 2023 Ofiesh Chamber Competition as a member of the Marzipan Quartet.
Throughout her young career, Agatha has continued to advocate for contemporary compositions in the hopes of expanding the classical music canon. As a member of the Lucerne Festival Academy and USC’s EDGE Ensemble, she has supported her mission to study and perform new and sometimes overlooked contemporary works. Agatha was also a featured soloist and chamber musician in the Kaleidoscope Chamber Orchestra’s contribution to the inaugural California Festival. She worked closely with and premiered Cathy Miliken’s newest work for string quartet, “In Speak,” as well as her piece for solo violin/voice “Crie”.

Agatha is also a strong believer in using musical performance for educational outreach and social advocacy. She has co-hosted and performed in concerts to raise money for various non-profit organizations, including ARC Southeast and the Brigid Alliance and has made visits to a number of Southern California medical facilities to perform as a part of Medicinal Music Makers. Agatha was also invited to be a member of the Apprentice String Quartet at the Music in the Vineyards Festival in Napa Valley, CA. While in attendance, she engaged in three weeks of daily outreach performances at schools, army facilities, and assisted living centers in the surrounding Napa County.

As an educator, Agatha is currently on faculty at the Colburn School, working for the Center for Innovation and Community Impact (CICI). Her work at CICI involves the formal training of young violinists in the greater Los Angeles community between the ages of 7 and 12 years old, as well as engaging them in community concerts and other classical events.

Agatha received her Bachelor of Music Degree in Violin Performance at Indiana University’s Jacobs School of Music in 2020, studying with Grigory Kalinovsky and Simin Ganatra. She completed her Master of Music Degree in 2023 at the University of Southern California’s Thornton School of Music, studying with Los Angeles Philharmonic Principal Concertmaster, Martin Chalifour. She has spent summers attending the Aspen Music Festival, Sarasota Music Festival, and Lucerne Festival Academy with Orchestral Fellowships. Agatha has also performed in concert with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, the Alabama Symphony Orchestra, and the Pasadena Symphony and has served as Associate Principal Second Violin with the American Youth Symphony in Los Angeles.

Outside of her violin playing, Agatha is an avid hiker and runner. She will also never pass up the occasional post-performance glass of fine red wine (her other passion). Agatha currently performs on a violin by modern maker, Mario Miralles, generously on loan to her through a private donor and bows made by W.E. Hill & Sons.
