Tamara Freida, Violin

Originally from Rochester, New York, Tamara moved to Arizona in  2005 to study with Dr. Katie McLin for a Master’s Degree in Violin Performance at ASU . Tamara currently plays with the Arizona Opera and also as the Assistant Concertmaster with the Symphony of the Southwest (formerly Mesa Symphony Orchestra) and the West Valley Symphony. She has also been a substitute player with both the Phoenix Symphony and Tucson Symphony Orchestra.

Tamara is very fortunate to have performed in many festival groups such as the AIMS Festival in Graz, Austria where she traveled through Europe and explored the birthplace of classical music. She has recently began playing fiddle music with the Irish band, Trotter’s Wake. Tamara also teaches private lessons to people of all ages and aims to help her students explore the dimensions which music can bring to life.

In her free time Tamara loves to hike and backpack. She is passionate about the wilderness and aspires to play music to raise money for groups like the Arizona Wilderness Coalition, which preserve our precious undeveloped lands. She is confident that music is one of the best ways to raise awareness for world issues, be a catalyst for social change and as a green and healthy way to bring people together. She is very excited about the idea of the Pangean Orchestra to bring people of all musical backgrounds together in positive creativity!
