Ms. Chodorowski holds a Bachelor of Music degree in violin performance from The Glenn Gould School, a master’s degree in violin performance from Northwestern University Bienen School of Music, and an artist diploma in Chamber Music Studies from the San Francisco Conservatory of Music. Her principal violin teachers were Paul Kantor, Almita Vamos and Ian Swensen.

She has performed alongside Geoff Nuttall of the St. Lawrence String Quartet, Robert DeMaine of the Los Angeles Philharmonic, The Pacifica Quartet, and pianist Jeremy Denk, among others.
