World music meets classical crossover and pop: violinist Sophie Serafino fuses exotic, melodic and rhythmic sounds and commands the stage with power and charisma, leaving you transfixed from start to finish. As Robert O’Brien from Black & White Magazine Australia says, ‘if flame haired violinist Serafino can lead that audience to a place where classical meets pop and rock, the rest is easy.’
A world renowned performer, Sophie shares her story through music, inspiring audiences to feel. Born in London, United Kingdom and raised in Sydney, Australia, Sophie has given more than 500 solo performances around the globe of her own compositions, a fusion of exotic rhythms and melodies. After attaining her Bachelor of Music Performance degree from Sydney Conservatorium (Violin Major) and the Associate & Licentiate Diplomas of Music in Violin Performance from the Australian Music Examinations Board, Sophie’s travel to distant locations for performances in cities in the middle east and Europe drew her into the world of theatrical performances, dance, pop, middle eastern and modern classical music. Sophie has worked with EMI and Warner Music Artists including Goldfrapp, The Hoodoo Gurus, Josh Groban and The Veronicas, and has performed for Olivia Newton-John and dignitaries including the Crown Prince of Dubai, Sheikh Mohammed at the Emirates Palace in Sao Paolo Brazil, the Bahraini Royal Family and Australian Ambassador of Turkey, and Crown Prince & Princess Mary & Frederik of Denmark.
