Lara St John

Lara St. John started playing the violin at age two, appeared as a soloist with an orchestra at four, made her European debut at ten, and earned rave reviews at every age and on every stage. We’re thrilled to welcome back Lara for her third appearance at ideacity!

Lara has performed as a soloist with the orchestras of Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver, San Francisco, Philadelphia, Cleveland and major orchestras in Europe, Asia, South America and Australia/New Zealand. She created her own record label in 1999 and won a JUNO Award in 2011.

The New York Times called her a “high-powered soloist” and the Los Angeles Times said, “Lara St. John happens to be a volcanic violinist with a huge, fabulous tone that pours of her like molten lava.”

She performs on the 1779 “Salabue” Guadagnini violin thanks to an anonymous donor and Heinl & Co. of Toronto.
