Violist Isabel Hagen

Today I would like to introduce violist Isabel Hagen, the final musician whom I will profile in this space.  Isabel is an active chamber musician and an avid performer of new music, performing with new music ensembles such as Ensemble Signal and the Wordless Music Orchestra.  She frequently works with composers, and has worked with John Adams, Charles Wuorinen, and Steve Reich.  Isabel is currently an undergraduate student at the Juilliard School studying with Masao Kawasaki, where she was a finalist in Juilliard’s 2011 viola concerto competition and is a two-time recipient of the Rosemary Glyde Scholarship awarded by the New York Viola Society.  Isabel will perform in the string quartet at theImaginary Timescapes performance.

You can hear Isabel with the Wordless Music Orchestra when they perform John Cale’s Paris 1919 at BAM on January 18th & 19th (details at
