Return to ParnasMusic


On May 8, 2010, at age 19, Madalyn received her diploma from The College of Saint Rose graduating summa cum laude with concentrations in both French and Music. Madalyn completed her college education in just three years, taking more than 130 credit hours of classes and carrying a 4.0 GPA. During these college years Madalyn also performed 30 concertos with orchestras including the New York String Orchestra conducted by Jaime Laredo and the Albany Symphony Orchestra under the baton of David Alan Miller. She recorded two CDs on the Sheffield Lab label, releasing one in January 2008 and the other in August 2009. Also, during this short time Madalyn took 1st prize in international chamber music competition at Carnegie Hall, performed numerous concerts with Peter Serkin as violinist for the Parnas/Serkin Trio, and joined the roster of professional artists at Latitude 45 Arts Management. While at Saint Rose Madalyn presented many educational programs for young audiences, performed benefits for local arts organizations, and generously lent her talents to all Saint Rose music student requests for support in performances and recordings. A recipient of both the Artistic Excellence Award and the Josef Gingold Violin Scholarship, Madalyn will be enrolled in the prestigious Artist Diploma program at Indiana University Jacobs School of Music on full scholarship this fall. Madalyn will pursue her studies with world renowned musician, violinist, and conductor, Jaime Laredo. Bravo, Madalyn!
