“Music should always be an adventure.” -Coleman Hawkins
Mari Hashimoto is a violinist and violist extraordinaire based in Western North Carolina and Upstate South Carolina who lives by C. Hawkins’ famous words. She holds a Master of Music in violin performance and is always seeking adventure in her career through travelling. She has travelled along the American East Coast breathing new life into Classical Music at several venues. She has also performed internationally, her most notable contribution was in the Festwoche Klassischer Musik in Oppenau, Germany.
Though Mari mostly performs Classical Music, she continuously pushes her musical bounds by exploring additional instruments and styles into fun, adventurous avenues such as city busking and videos. She is also generous with her knowledge; often devoting her time to teach children how to harness their musical prowess.
