  A prize-winner from an early age, German harpist Miriam Ruf is quickly establishing herself as a noteworthy soloist at concert-halls and competitions worldwide. As a laureate of the prestigious USA International Harp Competition, and a winner of numerous German and European awards, Miriam was recently unanimously awarded the “Musikförderpreis Schwaben”, recognizing her as a leading musician of her home region in Bavaria. As a devoted soloist Miriam regularly performs with various orchestras across Europe, such as the Nederlands Philharmonisch Orkestacademie and the Collegium Musicum Ulm. Equally enthusiastic about solo and orchestral playing, she was an academist of the Nederlands Philharmonisch Orkest in the 2018/19 season. Appearances in recent years have taken Miriam to halls across the world, such as Carnegie Hall in New York and the Concertgebouw Amsterdam. Hailing from Günzburg, Germany, Miriam holds a Bachelor’s Degree from the Conservatorium van Amsterdam’s Excellence Programme, where she studied with Erika Waardenburg and Sandrine Chatron. Currently, Miriam is pursuing her Master’s Degree at the Juilliard School under the tutelage of Nancy Allen. Miriam is generously supported by the Deutsche Stiftung Musikleben and the PE-Förderungen Mannheim. Violist Kayla Williams is an advocate for music, who hopes to diversify music through her own experiences as a Black woman. Originally from Florida, Kayla’s music endeavors began on the violin at age four, joining the Tallahassee Youth Orchestra soon after. It wasn’t until age ten that she discovered her true passion, the viola. As a winner of the 2018 Lynn Concerto Competition, she made her concerto debut performing Bartok’s Viola Concerto. Williams has been the guest of music festivals across a range of music genres including the Aspen Music Festival and School, Eastern Music Festival, and the Florida Folk Festival. Williams received her Bachelor of Music degree in Viola Performance from the Lynn Conservatory of Music in Boca Raton, Florida and is now pursuing her Master of Music degree in Viola Performance at The Juilliard School in New York City. Kayla believes music should be accessible to students of all backgrounds. She aspires to create a foundation of her own that will provide access and funding needed to support music programs in underrepresented communities. IMG-8434
