CSUDH to Host Free Performance by
International Violin Prodigy

CARSON, Calif. – Internationally recognized violinist Lindsay Deutsch, 19, of Los Angeles, will perform on Tuesday, Nov. 9 at 8:00 p.m. in the Recital Hall, A103, LaCorte Hall, on the campus of California State University, Dominguez Hills (CSUDH). The free concert is sponsored by the Mu Phi Epsilon Honorary Music Fraternity with a grant from CSUDH Associated Students, Inc.

At the age of 12, after a national talent search, she was selected as Concertmistress of the Disney Young Musicians Symphony Orchestra and performed with them as a featured soloist with Mark O'Conner in the Hollywood Bowl.

In past seasons, Deutsch has appeared as a soloist on the national radio program, “From the Top,” recorded at Boston's New England Conservatory for which she was selected for inclusion on the show’s “Best of” CD. Her other appearances include solo performances with various symphonies in Canada and across the United States.

She made her solo debut at the Walt Disney Concert Hall in August 2004, and has performed in various festivals and concert series in Canada, Chicago, and California, as well on the TV series “For Better or for Worse,” and various radio programs.

Deutsch has won many awards and competitions including the Valley Cultural Society Scholarship, the Friends of the Cerritos Center for the Performing Arts scholarship, and the Young Musician's Foundation Violin Scholarship. She was also a prizewinner in the 2003 Kingsville International String Competition, first place winner in the 2003 Parness Young Artists Competition and the 2004 Liana Cohen Competition.

She says that she knew she wanted to be a violinist at the age of two, when she was mesmerized by an Itzhak Perlman performance on “Sesame Street.” A freshman in college, she currently attends the Colburn School of the Performing Arts in Los Angeles. She also won the gold medal in the World Junior Olympic Racquetball Championships in 1997 and was selected to the 2000 U.S. Jr. Olympic Racquetball Team.

Deutch plays on a 1742 Sanctus Seraphin generously on loan from the Mandell Collection of Southern California. CSUDH serves as her first stop before taking the concert to Texas and Chicago.
