Eugenia Wie

Eugenia Wie, violin
A native of Chicago, Eugenia Wie made her radio debut on Chicago Public Radio playing Mendelssohn Violin Concerto at the age of nine. During her formative years, she was a recipient of a Nicolas Amati violin on generous loan from the Mary B. Galvin Foundation and Stradivarius Society. She has performed in solo and chamber music concerts across North and South America, Asia and Europe and appeared at world-renowned music festivals, including Round Top Music Festival, where she also performed Chausson Poeme with the Texas Festival Orchestra, Val-de-Charante, Banff Music Center for the Arts, Kneisel Hall, Schleswig-Holstein, Duo Masterclasses at Lausanne and the International Music Seminar at Prussia Cove. In 2000, she won the Frank Huntington Beebe Grant, allowing her to continue her studies abroad in Cologne, Germany.
 
Upon her return to the States, she served on faculty at the Music Institute of Chicago, where she also acted as Program Director of Chamber Music. She has performed in the Chicago Cultural Center’s Dame Myra Hess and Sunday Salon Series, NEIU’s Mostly Music and Jewel Box Series, Music in the Loft, and was in the University of Chicago’s Court Theater production of James Joyce’s “The Dead.” Before relocating to San Francisco, she was also a member of Camerata Chicago, Wisconsin Chamber Orchestra, and ProMusica Chamber Orchestra, where she collaborated in a performance of Mendelssohn’s Octet with Vadim Gluzman.
 
Wie holds degrees from Rice University and The New School’s Mannes College of Music. Her  principal teachers include Sergiu Luca, Daniel Phillips and Josef Gingold. An active freelancer and chamber musician, she had played in the Broadway in SF productions of “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” and “Soft Power” and is also a member of Divisa Ensemble and guest artist with Music at the Mission in Fremont. Currently, she’s a member of Santa Rosa Symphony, Symphony Silicon Valley and Monterey Symphony Orchestra. She also enjoys substituting with San Francisco Symphony, San Francisco Ballet and Opera San Jose. In December 2020, she released her first Holiday Album entitled “Winter Wander.” In recent years she has taken a great interest in musician wellness, which led her to complete her Yoga Tune-Up Teacher Training with Jill Miller last year.
 
She’s currently a Head-to-Toe-Better-than-Foam-Rolling teacher at Body Temp Yoga in San Francisco and leads the same class to the musicians of Santa Rosa Symphony. When she’s not practicing her violin or studying anatomy, you can find her snow-skiing, hiking or baking
