Larissa Fedoryka is a classically trained cellist who began 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, the increasingly well known Celtic/Americana band - Scythian, and most recently with Mexico's pop diva Gloria Trevi. In 2010 Larissa was hired by The Harmony Project - The LA Symphony's program to enrich inner city youth through music. Here Larissa arranged pop songs for orchestral music and oversaw two end of the year recitals. She now resides in Santa Barbara where she is pursuing her MM/DMA in performance under Jennifer Kloetzel.
