She will perform Violin Sonata No. 32 in B flat major, K. 454 by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Rhapsody No. 1, Sz. 86 by Béla Bartók, Violin Sonata No. 2 in A major, Op. 100 by Johannes Brahms, and Violin Sonata in D Minor, Op. 27, No. 3, “Ballade” by Eugène Ysaÿe. She will be accompanied by Dr. Shelby Sender for the first three pieces.

Sophia is a fourth year student double majoring in Chemistry with a B.S. Specialization in Biochemistry and in Music with a Performance Concentration. She has been playing violin for thirteen years and currently studies with Dr. Daniel Sender. During her time at UVA, she has been involved with many performance groups, including the Charlottesville Symphony, Chamber Ensembles, and the Baroque Orchestra. She is a Miller Arts Scholar and a recipient of the Undergraduate Award for Projects in the Arts with her piano trio, Trio Sobrenna, which funded the group’s fourth year recital. Sophia also played in masterclasses with Ruth Bacon, James Lyon and László Pólus.

Sophia’s favorite memories at UVA include making music with others in various contexts. She dedicates her program to the people who were part of her musical journey on the violin.

This recital is supported by the Charles S. Roberts Scholarship Fund. Established in 2004 by the generosity of Mr. Alan Y. Roberts ('64) and Mrs. Sally G. Roberts, the Charles S. Roberts Scholarship Fund underwrites the private lessons and recital costs for undergraduate music majors giving a recital in their fourth year as part of a distinguished major program in music.
