Larissa Fedoryka
Graduate cellist Larissa Fedoryka will present a DMA lecture recital entitled "If it ain't Baroque, you ought'a fix it...How Baroque cello music laid the foundation for cello works of the 19th and 20th centuries" on Wednesday, December 6, 2017 at 5 p.m. in Lotte Lehmann Concert Hall. Using the most commonly used cello etude books of today as a basis of comparison, Larissa will look at six early 18th century composers and their works, consulting three major treatises as well as the performance practices of the time.  
Larissa Fedoryka is a classically trained cellist beginning her cello career at the age of three. As a child she joined her 9 siblings who toured as a Classical Chamber ensemble called The Fedoryka Family Players, performing in venues nationally which culminated in multiple performances at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts as well as a performance at The Wolf Trap International Children's Festival. More recently Larissa has made the transition to world music touring with various artists such as Marco Antonio Solis, Croatia's former pop artist Tajci as well as the increasingly well known Celtic/Americana band - Scythian. She now resides in Santa Barbara where she is completing her DMA requirements in Cello Performance under Jennifer Kloetzel.
