    Current job:




    Standing on stage and indulging in the fleeting moment in the music – violist Karolina Errera has had this special feeling for a lifetime: from when she first appeared on stage at the age of five to her collaboration with the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra as a student of the Kronberg Academy or as a chamber music partner at well-known festivals.

    Karolina Errera grew up in a Dominican-Russian family with musical influences from all over the world. Making music was initially only intended as a pastime after schoolwork, but it quickly developed into a passion that has become an integral part of Karolina’s life.

    After completing her studies at Central Music School, the violist studied with Wilfried Strehle as part of her bachelor’s degree at the Berlin University of the Arts. Until 2019 she studied with Tabea Zimmermann at the Hanns Eisler University of Music in Berlin, then at the Kronberg Academy.

    During her training, Karolina Errera appreciates the support of other musicians, who always inspire her in the search for her own musical voice. Karolina enjoys developing her artistic personality in different formations. As an academician with the Berliner Philharmoniker, she learned to be part of a bigger whole without forgetting herself. In chamber music, she is fascinated by the sensitivity of the shared creative moment and the direct
    communication with one another. As a soloist, she would like to tell the stories behind the pieces of music. Karolina Errera has won numerous prizes, including the important Yuri Bashmet Competition and 2nd prize at the Markneukirchen International Instrumental Competition.

    She has already played in concert halls such as the Wigmore Hall in London, the Victoria Hall in Geneva and the Berlin Philharmonie. She is also a regular guest at international festivals such as the Verbier Festival, the Heidelberg Spring, the Seiji Ozawa Academy Festival, the Moritzburg Festival and the Krzyzowa Music Festival. In addition to her busy concert activity, the violist never forgets her goal: to play music for everyone and to invite everyone to immerse themselves in the dazzling world of classical music with her. The viola is the perfect instrument for this, its sound: “bittersweet”, enthuses Karolina Errera
