    Biography

    Öykü Canpolat was born in 1993 in Izmir, Turkey.  At the age of nine, she started studying viola as a ‚young student‘ in the class of Dr. Cetin Aydar, the viola professor at the State Conservatory „Dokuz Eylül University“.  She was the youngest ‚young student‘ in the Conservatory. She continued her Bachelor studies also as a student of Prof. Çetin Aydar. She was promoted twice during her education due to her outstanding success, therefore she graduated two years earlier than the usual.

    In April 2015, she won First Prize as well as a special audience prize at the seventh International Szymon-Goldberg Competition.

    In 2015, she began her Master Studies at the Hochschule für Musik ‚Hanns Eisler‘ in Berlin under the tutelage of Prof. Tabea Zimmermann.  She graduated with Highest Honors in 2019.

    From 2016 to 2020, she was a tenured member as Coordinate Solo Viola at the Deutsche Oper Berlin.
