Multi Grammy nominated and Steinway artist Marta Aznavooria has performed throughout the world as orchestral soloist, recitalist, chamber musician and educator. A Chicago native, she made her professional debut at age 13 performing the Mozart Piano Concerto No. 24 with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra in four concerts. Having worked with conductors such as the late Sir Georg Solti, Michael Tilson Thomas and Lukas Foss, she has won

numerous awards, including first prize at the Stravinsky International Competition. Marta became a Presidential Scholar, was invited to the White House and performed as soloist at the Kennedy Center in Washington. As a founding member of the Lincoln Trio ( “one of the hottest young trios in the business”—Fanfare Magazine) she tours regularly throughout the world. The Trio’s most recent release, “Trios From Our Homelands” was nominated for a Grammy in 2017.

Ms. Aznavoorian has appeared at many Festivals including Tanglewood, Aspen, Caramoor, Hornby Island and Green Lake, and recently made her 11th straight season appearance at the Ravinia Festival. A student of Menahem Pressler, she received her Bachelor’s Degree and Artist Diploma at Indiana University and her Masters Degree from the New England Conservatory.
