Kate Maloney

Kate Maloney | CAN | *1990
Barbican Quartet | Violine

Recognized for bold and inspired performances, delivered with flawless technique and a vivid colour palette, Canadian violinist Kate Maloney is truly an original in the field of classical music. She is dedicated to exploring repertoire that is rarely performed while promoting diversity and inclusivity.

Through the creation of immersive concert experiences, Kate seeks to engage listeners through her choice of repertoire, collaboration with multi-disciplinary artists, or through direct audience interaction.

Kate is a sought-after chamber musician and soloist. In 2022 she performed with the Nairobi Symphony Orchestra to celebrate international women’s day. Currently studying with Christoph Poppen and Lena Neudauer at the Hochschule für Musik und Theater München in Germany, she is also a founding member of the Trio Ignis.

Kate is a recipient of many awards, most notably the Lloyd Carr Harris Scholarship. She has performed in concert halls around the world such as Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, Roy Thompson Hall, Walt Disney Hall, Munich Philharmonic Hall Gasteig, Maison Heinrich Heine France and many more.

Kate’s engagement with music extends outside the concert hall and has led her to teach and perform as a part of the Global Leaders Program in countries such as Kenya, Tanzania, Panama.

Kate performs on an Italian violin from 1768 by Bartolomeo Bimbi, on a generous loan from a private donor.
