Lorenz Fradkin-Annen, 12, is an eighth-grade student at Oregon Middle School in Oregon, WI. When she was three and a half, she attended her oldest sibling’s school orchestra concert and then begged her parents for violin lessons for an entire school year before they gave in and found her a private teacher. This past summer she was a finalist in the Interlochen Intermediate concerto competition. She received Honorable Mention in the 2021 and 2022 Madison Symphony Orchestra’s Fall Youth Concerto Competition and has also twice won Honorable Mention in the Wisconsin Youth Symphony Orchestra concerto competition. She has received two WSMA Exemplary Performance awards. In 2020 she was the Intermediate winner of the Nie Young Artist Scholarship Competition (violin) and is a past winner of the Rhapsody Arts Center’s Sonatina Festival (piano). Lorenz would like to thank her current violin teacher Eugene Purdue and her former teacher Maureen McCarty. She plays bassoon and violin in WYSO’s Philharmonia orchestra, where she has served as concertmaster. She also studies piano and performs in MadFiddle, a Madison violin ensemble led by Shauncey Ali. When not practicing music, she can be found writing music and computer code and tinkering with computers. Someday she would like to write and perform music for a movie.
