Recent chamber music performances have taken her across South America with Roberto Diaz, and the New England area with Miriam Fried. Maria Ioudenitch was appointed Concertmaster of the Curtis Symphony Orchestra for 2016-2017, ending the season with a tour through Europe featuring Strauss’s “Ein Heldenleben”. This summer, she attended the Marlboro Music Festival.
