Fourth-year School of Music student Amy-Lynne Toth performs Vieuxtemps’s Violin Concerto No. 5 with the UVic Orchestra. “This piece has such a driving force behind it right up until that last note,” describes Amy-Lynne, winner of the UVic Concerto Competition. “Every performer likes an excuse to be a little dramatic,” says Toth, who will strive to bring the music’s intense energy and power to her performance.
Amy-Lynne picked up her first violin at the age of 5 and has never looked back. By sixteen, she was a full-time first violinist in the Red Deer Symphony Orchestra and has since performed in professional ensembles and orchestras throughout Alberta and BC. She is currently studying violin performance at UVic with Ann Elliott-Goldschmid. Amy-Lynne has recently been awarded a Jamie Cassels Undergraduate Research Award from UVic for her research on the influence of Eastern-European folk music in 20th century classical works, and will give a public presentation and performance in March 2019.
